Colour of Life

Colour is vibrant, when rain and sun make nature;
O myself, standing someone’s pride and joy; I hangover until the rainstorm ends;
O me, searching for life in rainbow that was worth sticking around having life anomalies.

Oh. man of slack hold me tight, all I know how to run with fun;
Stay on my life’s canvas and show me your true colour in my difficult run;
I search in religion; but it makes me distorted;
I too detach self, with colour of politics;
So attach myself, with colour of serenity.

Colour refreshing me, so perceptive rather than, so confused;
When I feel living is different, black the colour of life.

Life is powerful when it closely connects with the soul; and realizes the uniqueness of the world.

The chameleon is the master in disguise, blend into complex background;
Lord help me be like a chameleon; adjusting my colour to different surroundings.
