Shades of Green

Housefly green

Green with envy

Fly away green

Green grow the lilies oh

Swear by green

Super green

Sorrow green

Hungry green

Green greed

What am I going to do now green

I want a new job green

Kill all these bitches green

Go away green

Make me a better person green

I don’t care green

The first poem I ever wrote

When the sun peers into the sea

It doesn’t see itself at first

But when the reflection is clear

The sun is riding on the waves.

I wrote this in 5th grade and I’m still kinda proud of it even though reflections need light or whatever and scientifically it doesn’t make any sense BUT there’s this weird place where writing takes you where things don’t have to make sense to make you feel good.
