The Color Wheel

What color defines you?
Sometimes I’m yellow
Free and happy, trusting and caring
Sometimes I’m blue
Introspective, wanting only to think things through
There are times when I’m green
Greedy and spiteful, ready for a fight
The days where my heart is black are days
That I don’t want to discuss at all
They’re the ones I try my hardest to forget
But remember at all the wrong times
My red days are fun
I feel wild and free, ready to do anything, try anything
The problem is that I never know what color I’m going to awaken as
Or what color is going to try to combine with what color I already am
Just like a color wheel, not all colors match
Some set each other off so badly that it splits the seams of my day
And when the seams begin to spilt, I don’t have the strength
To put them back together
My white days consist of nothingness
It’s when I allow myself to be sucked down into the absence of all color
Colors that consist of friends, family, love, laughter, joy, peace
I hate the white days the worst, the worst, the worst
As long as I keep running and running the color wheel keeps spinning
And only when it spins am I living
Otherwise, I am sucked into the nothingness of white
And I must dig and crawl my way out
Don’t stop
The color wheel doesn’t choose you
You choose the color

Happily married, aspiring writer that thinks sometimes the destination is worth the journey. Sometimes the journey is worth the destination. Then again, sometimes the journey is just HARD and the destination isn't worth the time it took to get there. Sometimes the journey is EASY and the destination STILL isn't worth it! The only constant is that there is always a journey and always a destination. I would LOVE for you to follow me on my journey and together we can find the destination. So, come on, we have to keep on keeping on!
