Paint

If I was on my deathbed,
There’s one thing I would say:
Do not be haunted by your past,
The future isn’t grey.
It isn’t blue or yellow,
The colors are not clear.
You are the brush and palette,
So paint and do not fear.

Paint the world you wish to see
In hues that thrill the eyes,
Splash the landscape as you please
And swirl the brilliant skies.
There’s no one here to judge you,
No errors will subsist.
If only in your heart and mind,
True freedom shall persist.
