That Was I

My self-deceptions have colored my life for so long now
The deep dark blues of solemn hours were of my own making

Angry reds, should have been lustful passions
The mellow pinks of love could have been my companions
Sunny yellow joys, too transient to warm me for long
My choices were always there, but I chose the drabber tones
Hide me in the shadows; I do not want any light
This was my only desire.

When you stand in darkness, nothing is clear.
Voices call you, but you cannot place them
Signs placed along the way are unreadable
The path will be rocky, and you will find them all
You walk looking down, always looking down
The scars of past hurts mar a once perfect heart
When you fall, you claw the dry lifeless earth
That was I, not long ago.

and see the rainbow!

You are right about not seeing clearly when standing in darkness. Moving into the light takes courage.
