Today I'm...

Today I’m blue.
Morbidly depressed
Sadness overflows my heart
Tomorrow can’t get any worse

Today I’m orange
Bright and happy
Smiles are unlimited
Tomorrow can’t get any better

Today I’m grey
Boring and dull
Life and its excitements have stopped
Tomorrow something will happen

Today I’m red
Fiery and unstable
Anger is an unstoppable force
Tomorrow there will be a mess to clean up

Today I’m burgundy
Warmed deeply to my core
Family makes me cozy
Tomorrow will be ice cold

Today I’m black
Far past depression
Need I say suicidal?
Tomorrow I hope I’ll be dead

Today I’m hot pink
Fight breast cancer
Dancing around in my PJs
Tomorrow I will win the lottery

Today I am brown
Neutral and earthy
Calmness surrounds me
Tomorrow the hurricane will come

Today I’m rainbow
Highs and lows, happy, sad, vivacious, comatose, excited, dull
Emotions are my personal nightmare
Tomorrow I’ll be the same teenage girl
