All the colors that my eyes see
Seem to become a part of me

The red that bleeds my angry days
The gray that shades my darkest ways

The forest green that brings me ease
The purple tracks left from my disease

The black that dresses my hearts delight
To my faith which is a pillow of white

All these lead me to one conclusion
The rainbow is but another illusion

Written for the first part of Sir Brian's
