Paint A Picture

Paint a picture

Of how you want life to be

Choose your canvas

Your paints

Your colours

The composition.

 

Paint a picture

Of how life really looks

Change your canvas

Your paints

Your colours

The composition

If you do not like what you see.

 

Paint a picture

Of how your life could change

If you were able to choose

Your canvas

Your paints

Your colours

Your composition.

 

Paint a picture

Of how life could be

If your canvas was blank

You pick paint from this place

Colours from that place

The composition is a mess

But it is there.

 

Paint a picture

In your mind

Of the memories

The good, the special, the beautiful

 

Create a picture

A happy place

A safe place

From those beautiful memories

Cut bits out of the canvas

The bits you like best.

 

You can create a masterpiece

With paint

Without paint

All you need

Is the desire to create.
