Crossing through different hues each day

Some days feeling rotten

With heart sunken,

Eyes brim-full with tears and swollen,

So heart broken,

Like autumn leaves fallen,

All hopes crashed and gone,

Gone with the wind, gone!

Like Gatsby’s life tragic,

Deserted, utterly desperate, melancholic,

Betrayed, deprived of all joy

Becoming Lady Fortune’s puppet, her toy! 


And some days hale and hearty,

Feeling so bubbly,

Light, wishing to touch the blue, mesmerizing sky

On the wings of poesy fly

To the heavens,

Be among the light-hearted denizens,  

In realms ravishingly uplifting,

Gushing with life’s blessing,

Heart light like butterflies,

Immersed in cheerfulness,

Readily appreciating one and all

With gratitude and all!

    A great analysis of human hues, of how we go through and experience different emotions. Expressed with a certain lyrical tone.
