Stay gold, Ponyboy


Look inside
Your mind is an angry blur
Red with anger
Blue with ache
Purple with bruises

Battle scars and war wounds
You hide them under smiles and laughter
You can’t let anyone in
It’s a lonely life

You think you’re the only one
And if someone knew,
You’d be so ashamed
Ashamed of your red and purple and blue mixed up mind

For your sake,
Let someone in
You’re alone now
And it’s killing you, I can tell

Little do you know
Little do you understand
You’re not alone

You see the colors
So do they
You’re blinded by the colors
So are they

And they’re so ashamed
Because they think they’re the only ones
