Treasure Island

T Ebi Ken Jemine

Never Mind The Painter

Colors are bundles of toys to him
He fiddling fiddles with colors while Rome burns
You are who you're, that's your true color
You may be gold, feeling blue, painted black
The meaning of colors are many & ain't nature.
Smile, never upset that mirror in that your wall
Coloring is a culture of the painter

He chooses colors accordingly
You were not chosen, you were made
Long before colors were born
If you were to be painted,
You're the best painter of yourself
Paint yourself red, if you're feeling angry
Paint yourself yellow, if you're feeling cheerful
Paint yourself pink, if you're feeling loving

Paint yourself green, if you're feeling positive
Paint yourself purple, if you're feeling creative
Paint yourself blue, if you're feeling peaceful
Paint yourself white, if you're feeling pure
Never mind the painter's painting
You're the best painter of yourself
Paint yourself the image you feel within you.
That is where your happiness sleep

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
