Poem: Blending

By: A. R. Sancheti


Unchangingly cheerful like my childhood
with rays of sunshine that radiate warmth
on the most drab days
the color yellow is my mother’s warmth with every touch

My friends constantly fiery with passion and pizzazz
red is a person who has strength,
self-confidence, and is assertive.
It is what I have grown to replicate
by breaking out of my shell
and speaking my heart even when I’m not asked.

Not cheerful yellow
Not fiery red
Not like either

Instead a mixture that creates a new hue
that has its own depth and distinction.
A speck of marigold is a diamond in the rough,
beautiful for being unlike any other.
