Feeling in: Green

Green is the color of life.

It is the leaves in the early

summer,

singing lazy lullabies as the

breeze gently kisses them.

 

Green is gentle, the grass, once

covered by the oppressive snow,

yet it rises up still.

It is soft between your toes as

the sun tickles your skin.

Green is what it feels like to 

be alive.

 However.

Green is murky.

It hides the corruption of

greed that sticks to the bottom

of our shoes and never seems to come

off.

Green is indifferent. It

is the witness paid off,

a secret kept with bribes.

It doesn’t care who is hurt, it

just wants its payoff.

Green is natural, and slimy,

like a pond filled with algae.

We don’t want part of green,

but with one comes the other.

It’s a package deal,

no returns.

Feeling in Colors

Hi friends! So, I am going to shake it up a little bit. Normally, I just write and post whatever I am feeling at that time, but I want to do something a bit different. Instead, I am going to do a segment, or series of sorts, based around colors. It sounds boring, but I am hoping you’ll all love it! So here is the first one, which is more of an intro.

Enjoy!

~Josephine

I am mourning for humanity,

and how we have allowed ourselves

to forget what it is to feel in

colors.

We are taught to suppress our

envy, because it is wrong, and

rude, but why is it wrong to want something,

and to work to get it?

We hide our sadness, because

they say it is weakness, and we mustn’t

allow ourselves to be tender.

“Other people have it much worse,”

although true, does not cure a broken

heart.

We restrain ourselves from

spontaneity, because we are afraid

we will do it wrong.

But we forget there is no right or

wrong in passion.
