To be



All that I've ever known are
Colorfull flowers, and their thorns,
Pretty voices, and their songs.
Lovely people but they are gone.
How come you feel so gray?
im an artist, I'll paint your way,
Be the flower that rises in sun,
be the voice that wakes me up,
even one of the people ive met so far.
