Colors Exposed

I’m destroying denials and taking for certain
How I have shamefully shut all of my curtains
To protect and shield my most sorrowful burdens.

While progressively closing my powerful drapes
Each day to defend my unique forms and shapes
I was afraid to reveal beneath my invincible cape.

Until I’ve gradually perceived that it would be okay
To expose my colors even through the darkest day,
Instead of concealing my thoughts leading to stray
Away with a troubled mind coping with the daily fray.


Exploring to gain strength, I’ll courageously seek
Endeavoring it’s long length, to avoid being weak.
Although my shadows tend to creep and take a peak,
Persuading my colors from permission to seep and leak.

My strength keeps me standing from ever being beat,
By my fears that shall surrender to my soul’s vigor defeat
To prove that my colors were never meant to fade or sleet.
I’m not moving my ground I’m sunk into the colored concrete.

In the end, strength really wasn’t hard to look for,
Nor was it hard to resist my shadows implore.
I’ve destroyed my denials from each end of the polar,
That’s been ultimately vile though I now shed each color.
