need more colour

no more black

By ASHLEY SMITHPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

all around the world is grey

my clothes are black, my view is dark

my head is full, of nothing bright

I need more colour in my life

I need something of cheer

something of joy but no pain

I have so much but feel so little

I need more brightness, I need more light

I need the air, I need the joy

it hurts to go out, it hurts to stay in

the world is growing in colour

I am collapsing in grey

I need more colour

I have the love around me

I have the love anyone could desire

I will begin to see the light

I will hear the sounds again

I will feel the sun and rain

I will overcome the desire to fail

i will get the colour in my life
