Life in Shades

At birth, you manifest in bright colours,
Shading like rainbows stirring beautiful smiles.

You raise hopes as heads look up to spy at tomorrow
The drumbeats become heartbeats as the strides go further into life’s unknown
Yet with bended knees and a prayerful heart we continue to hope for the sun to stand still.

Alas as the clock ticks and days count you transcend, revealing yourself in your defined colours, to be proud or to be sad, the colour, stays as unveiled.

So it is for all that travel through earthtimes
Life is in shades and colours
