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
