Nothing Has To Be

Does everything have to be? Are the colors in the rainbow really all the colors...and are tree trunks always brown?

It depends on the place.

Well in our world, are flower stems always dark green?

As far as I know.

Why arent we aloud to draw a red sun?

Because the sun is yellow.

How come the sky is blue like water, and water is blue like sky?

I don’t know, that’s what I’m told.

Are we tought things because they are truly right or because everything has to be?

Probably because it’s truly right.

No, I don’t think so.


You know in my world nothing has to be so.

Are you sure?

I don’t know but I don’t care, my world is all in my head.

Whatever you say.

No matter what any one says, my world doesn’t have to be.


Tomorow, the grass will have yellow in it...the sun will be red...and water clear.
But you can’t do that!

Why not?
That’s not how it is.

I don’t care, in my world I don’t see how it is.
