The colours brighten me,
they take over my soul,
they create a somewhat free-for-all.
In my heart, which I’ll tame one day,
when it is the time to blatantly shine,
I caress memories and emotions borne of
I know they’ll surface soon,
and that’s completely fine.
The colour of the day is my favourite,
it emboldens me,
brings a spring to my step,
wearing it, I feel girlish,
and bright and bubbly,
there are no more signs of outward duress.
I cloak myself in my protective garb,
because this is what makes me feel stronger,
less saddened, emboldened,
my heart, still untamed,
is presently screaming,
multiple voices all
one and the same,
let us talk without hurtful candour,
let us be kind at heart.
