Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
The twists, the turns, the lifts, the dives.
It all comes at different speeds,
at different levels, at different needs.
Once you think you’ve caught your breath,
you’re off again.
A completely new adventure.
Sometimes the water fills your lungs—
your world turns dark.
At others, your eyes are so full of colour
that it starts to leak through your tears,
You struggle to release it,
either because the expression is difficult
or because there’s too much to share.
But what do you do when it’s both?
The veil pulled down,
and the colours revealed?
filling the air with bursts of colours and smooth lines of grey.
overflowing the canvas with black and blue and shades of the day.
pouring rivers of red and purple into our ears.
pouring out the melange of pink and green, yellow and orange, brown and turquoise that’s consumed you through the years.
You be you.
You be who you long to be.
You be the people you look up to.
You be you in your greatest dreams.
