Scintillating

Report Story

Light is my favorite color

ROY G BIV

To scintillate - that is my fate.

To reflect - I am life’s architect.

Some say I’m crazy, others insane.

But truth is my glass and pain is my frame.

Beautifully mysterious, wonderfully dark.

Embracing myself is truly an art.

I color with chaos, draw with emotion.

Sad is my sky and deep is my ocean.

Faith is my backdrop, reality my light.

Joy is my day and sorrow is night.

Love is my essence, hope is my pattern.

My heart is a Cancer, and my ruler is Saturn.

I rise like an Archer, the rain is my bow.

I flow like a river, and fall like the snow.

I see through the liquid, and break through the ice.

I vibrate within vapor, and never think twice.

In the midst of the flood, I find peace like a dove.

I am not just one thing, but all of the above.

Some say I’m crazy, others insane.

But vibrant has always been better than plain.

My life is a choice, and my mind is a schism.

But when the sunlight hits me I’ve always been a prism.

To scintillate - that is my fate.

To reflect - I am life’s architect.
