My Colors

December 9, 2011
Morning wakens me, Bright, enthusiastic orange.

I Burst with life and energy,

Thirsting for attention,

Ready to face anything.

My joy radiates off of me

I try to make everyone I am with

Feel the Light.

But sometimes, I am calm,

A pale, chilly blue.

Tender and compassionate

Sometimes sad,

Reminiscent about things past,

Wishing I could always be bright, happy orange.
