Poetry: “Paint by numbers”

Another poem dealing with what it means to be human, to be your own person, how to act and behave.


Paint with numbers

Paint your life with numbers
Go follow your design
And be careful so you don’t
Fill outside the lines

There is a little wiggle room
To make yourself unique
After all there are so many
Color hues to use

To some to follow a design
Is a comfort, it is safe
But if you are the odd one out
To be bold is to survive

I want to be a rebel
Paint it blue when it says red
Let the paintbrush in my hand
Go wherever it may
