I Walked on Rainbow

27 02 2012

So, I wrote this last night. Inspiration is unclear still, but it seemed apropos considering it’s my birthday, even if it’s a little depressing.  So much has happened in this year alone, I feel ninety instead of sixteen. New school, new city, new friends, LOVE (which wasn’t something I had to deal with at my last school). I promise at some point here I will get around to everyone’s pages. Recent personal  happenings are keeping my schedule a little erratic.

Cheers from the new old lady 😉

There was a time so long ago

When my feet touched nothin’ but rainbow

I skipped

And I hopped

I ran

And I danced

Me myself and I

Needed no romance

The sky was blue

And the grass was green

Everything I had

Was all I could need

No worries

No pain

No cold hard truth

My worst hurt was when

I lost a baby tooth

Reality was too big

For my naive eyes to see

My world was so small

I bounced of its walls with glee

And my feet touched nothin’ but rainbow

Colors shimmered and scattered

With my every footfall

Dropping down like painted tears

Of course I thought they were only rain

Tears are for those who have experienced pain

That rainbow was once so wide

I had to run a mile to the other side

It slowly shrank

As I grew up

Until I was on tip toes

And then one day


I fell down

Off my rainbow

Like a bird from its nest

It had just disappeared

And so childhood’s fog cleared

I knew not where to go

Having lost my compass of a rainbow

For a while I was lost

And I probably still am

It’s much harder to find one’s way

On crude, solid land

My pot of gold exists somewhere

And I’ll keep on looking

Even though life’s not always fair

Happy birthday, Andrea.

And so you know, it’s even better when you find the rainbow again later on.
Hope the year holds everything you hope for!

Tell you what, Treasure. This is probably the best piece of work I’ve read all day. I’ve had it up to here with naval gazing twaddle, yours is real. If there’s one more mention of disdain or vain or mirrors or what the hell else I will explode, yours is bloody real! Ok, not brilliant technically but who cares.

Now you’re a fully qualified member of the Old Bags Club you have a rep to keep up!

Belated happy birthday, Andrea! Hope you had a wonderful day…full of love! That child in you need not be lost…let your tears still be rain knowing that the sun will shine again…and thus rainbows are created…and the treasures of living are still there as long as you believe.

I must add that I really love this poem…and even at my much older age, found something to calm and encourage me as my life changes yet again in ways I may not be able to control as I want. Thank you!
