Canvas

Canvas of beige
Painting your world with boredom



Sameness
Outlawing individuality
Shutting life into simple boxes
So you don’t have to be afraid

Canvas of blood
Painting your world with overwhelming hate



Pain
Outlawing compassion
Shoving humanity into walls
So you don’t have to be afraid

Canvas of tears
Painting your world with stabbing sorrow



Guilt
Outlawing laughter
Drowning joys in an ocean of murk
So you don’t have to be afraid


Canvas of ignorance
Painting your world with black and white



Mistakes
Outlawing understanding
Keeping everything fuzzy, out of focus
So you don’t have to be afraid

Canvas of smiles
Painting your world with searing brightness



Cheer
Outlawing depression
Seeing nothing but a perfect fairy tale
So you don’t have to be afraid

Canvas of perfection
Painting your world with unachievable standards



Ideals
Outlawing mistakes
Striving for nothing but the impossible
So you don’t have to be afraid

Canvas of rainbows
Painting your world with new emotions



Ideas
Outlawing nothing
Breaking out of all preconceived notions
Everyone is afraid sometimes
