The Aftermath

On the outside I am red-
Burning like a fire with strong desire,
Desire to make a difference in the world as best as I can,
I enjoy the spotlight as much as anyone,
Front and center is where I love to be,
I laugh and joke around,
I fight for what is right,
I believe in change,
And I live to make others happy.

On the inside I am pale ocean blue-
Torn and broken like a ship in the aftermath of a hurricane,
Lost at sea I swim to find where I should be,
I am like the floating pieces of the ship with no where to go,
And no place to call my own.
I search for that stable feeling of the little island after floating for so long,
A way to know that I am okay in the end,
That life will be better after being lost for so long.
