– brighter –

Concerned over brown and black and

mud-like forest greens, I

never was the type to see the

forest for the trees… but

now-there’s-red – an

apple so delicious, a

sky-blue-thread – a

limit now fictitious, and

all-words-said – from

hopes and prayers and wishes… won’t

make the colors lighter; my

actions make them brighter.


Vivid is the vision that I

see among the grey…

livin’ with decisions to paint

my rainbow today. It will be

furious, within the fire,

curious, upon the wire,

serious, yet so much brighter

than yesterday.
