A State of Blue


The color blue represents my inner self
One color that spreads across oceans and skies
One look at my shade of blue
Only makes me think of my youth

From the time I fell from the swing
To the time I first felt I had committed the truest of sins
I vividly see the shade of truth
That drove my life to a state of blue

They said I needed a yellow ground
To combine with my seas and skies
Green is the color of peace
But also the shade of jealousy

Yet all at once my feelings of blue
Felt suddenly replaced by the deepest shade of maroon
Please free me from my inner rage
And take me back to the story’s first page

From when I was born I feared the difference
A heartbeat sounds, a brain resists it
I guess I always knew
From the moment I felt my special shade of blue
