Sometimes I feel red,
When I’m angry or cranky,
But then I take a moment to breathe,
And I embrace serenity instead.
Sometimes I feel orange,
Like the warm morning sun,
Feeling like I can achieve anything,
And I get this big surge of courage.
Sometimes I feel yellow,
Like I’m constantly meditating,
Doing yoga stretches and smiling,
And end up feeling so mellow.
Sometimes I feel green,
Like I’m at one with mother nature,
And I feel like I should run around a field,
Like a carefree young teen.
Sometimes I feel blue,
When sadness and heartbreaks happen,
But then I look for things to make me happy,
Like a lovely new pair of shoes.
Sometimes I feel indigo,
Like a movie star or a singer,
Someone who is dripping with diamonds,
But with a reasonably-sized ego.
Sometimes I feel violet,
Like I am competent and sensible,
Someone who people can always count on,
Whose great potential hasn’t even been discovered yet.
