Shades of Blue

What is yours?

Melancholy, depressed, dismal, and blue

How I’ve been described, but it’s not true

Such is the way with the shades of blue

Pondering, thinking, reflecting, mull

Because of this, people think I’m dull

Such is the way with the shades of blue

Happy, laughing, smiling, and merry

People think that this is contrary

Such is the way with the shades of blue

Quiet, private, discreet, and still

In my profession, these are a skill

Such is the way with the shades of blue

Navy, powder, royal, and steel

Cobalt, cerulean, sky, and teal

Such is the way with the shades of blue

Can you describe the many hues

Can you describe other people’s views

Such is the way with the shades of blue
