Life's painting

I yearn to see this life as a painting.

I want to see the colors that are mixed in, 

The colors I have not yet seen,

The colors that would spiral into blackness,

 Textures that would bellow for help 

When they know no one is coming. 

Would there be a rough sea 

Dyed by the blood of my heart? 

Can there be rain as I drown in the night sky? 

Oh, what a mess it would be,

A waste of space, 

A waste of materials,

A painting I would hate.

But I would still frame it 

For that is me.

  • Camp Memories

    When packing up to go home 

    Don’t forget to pack your memories 

    If you lose them 

    The way that you remembered them is forever gone 

    Keep them safe 
  • I Wish

    I wish I was air 
    Wrapping people in a hug 
    No problems to fear

    I wish I was earth 
    A place to run, jump and play
    with places to stay

    I wish I was fire 
    Warming those who need it most
