Her Name Is Taylor

Inside You See Something Green - Poem by Her Name Is Taylor

My outside is unassuming and blank
It is pretty when Im secure,
but when my shelter is broken, and
I see too much light
My ugliness shows
But I know when to hide,
b/c like the hulk
I turn green when something's not the same
and I have to walk a dark hall of shame
I see her there, my art, my talent, and my life
her pretty eyes, and pale white skin
that tortures me inside
then I become a color wheel.....
and eventually you see green
then I know my insides have escaped me

but I soon have to turn into the proud brown that I am
b/c someone told me about loving myself
& strong-and-fighting brown words seek
to fight the green away
& my heart begs to be rescued from the pain
the brown words win, but green lurks to escape
when I forget about the brown, and something's not the same

    T rue we all have dark (green) inner selves
    a kind of instinctive reaction to stimuli
    y es, it differs from each other
    l et it alone and learn to live with it
    o f all the things we do
    r eserve some love for oneself to control the green!
