I tried to convince myself it’s just another day,
….but on this very special day someone pulled hard on a thread
from the Tapestry Of My Life;
… and unraveled their strands of COLOR to change their part in it to gray.
….all the way back to the beginning of time.
….and then just like that
my heart broke.
It’s a different kind of pain to realize your truth is yours alone.
It’s a different kind of fear to feel the prejudice you didn’t know existed.
The three who love me most tried,
….but I locked myself away to heal my δoul.
Then I rewrote a lifetime of memories to protect my δpirit
Filling back in the colors as I dared…
….and sat alone realizing that coloring twisted memories is like finding a rainbow in the dark.
….and I let fall the different kind of tears.
