Funny Colours Of A Selfless Childhood

Our childhood dreams without restraint
Painting a world of colours of our choice
Selfless child of nature, our childhood dreams
Just happy and grateful, with no cares

Blue li’l puppies and cats with colours so quaint
Grass vividly violet, along sparkling chocolate streams
Just happy and grateful, with no cares
Selfless child of nature, our childhood dreams

Crows painted bright green and red
Lest it feels sad about wearing black always
Selfless child of nature, our childhood dreams
Just happy and grateful, with no cares.

Though cloudy, stars and moon adorned the night skies,
Lest a traveller loses his way in the haunted forests
Just happy and grateful, with no cares
Selfless child of nature, our childhood dreams

That child is gone now, along with the paintings of old
Yet somehow, memories bring that kid at times; this
Selfless child of nature, our childhood dreams
Just happy and grateful, with no cares❤

Riot Of Colours

( A FreeVerse written for OctPoWriMo-Day 3)

Shades so vivid, splattered across our lives
Rendering emotions so deep that we do care.
Born pure with the angelic innocence of white,
With cheerful tones of yellow painting our lives,
We prosper in green shades of positivity;
And of course, a hint of envy.
Those crimson hues of love, long gone and forgotten,
Deep blue waters calming the messiest of minds,
A promise of protection in Mother Earth’s brown tints;
Not to forget the ideal turquoise, creative purple,
Harmonious magenta or nurturing pink.
Life’s palette is complete with our grey moments
That cloud our judgement; And the
Dark human acts that bring shame even to the vile beasts.
Words fail to fathom the beauty of the myriad hues;
Yet we live within this chaotic riot of colours,
Radiant at times, overpowering often; defining us always.
For my part, I end up wondering,
Are we strong enough to balance its presence?
