“You are a light so bright
And oh my god, your potential…”
“You’re one and you’re many,
And the way you hold the rainbow together?”
“Effortlessly light as a feather”
“I pick you cause you fit so well,
My God, you’re essential!”
“You’re the end of every fight,
You’re peace and calmness.”
I no longer have a voice.
I have been constantly talked over.
With me there’s always a choice,
I’m a contrast,
I’m a freakin’ easy option.
Easy to get, easy to do away with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You find someone too loud for your taste?
Add a bit of me for balance
And I’ll fade out the extra
To calm your nerves
To soothe your eyes.
You met someone too dull?
Keep me on the side
And I’ll make sure they shine
Amidst my dreary lack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
You got too bored
Of the same old thing?
Pick up that brush and paint me
In all the shades of your fantasies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And when you’re done,
do me a favor,
The next time you see me,
Just freakin’ LET. ME. BE.
