Orange is who I am when I get excited
Bright like a caution cone
The wild side that knows no restriction
It is the constant fire that burns and keeps me going
Orange is that part that cannot be controlled.

Green is the serine part of me
When I like to kick back and chill
There is always part of me that is calm
Evergreen like the forests of Canada
Green in the peacemaker
It is the link between man and earth

Red is anger
Red is passion
Red is the blood that courses through my veins
The flush on my face
It comes and goes but is never gone
Lying dormant waiting to attack when the time is right

Black is nothingness
It the emptiness inside when your thoughts get to you
Black is disease that takes over your body
It is a curtain of death that fear hides behind
Nothing can escape black not even light
Black is the shadows that follow you places

Blue is fresh
The deep breathe of air
The openness of a clear sky on a summer day
Pure water running down a waterfall
The interest that lies within to explore
My comfy blue jeans that I love to wear.
