Green is my colour

Green is my colour
In the traffic of my mind
It tells me to go
To seek and yes to find.

They say Green stands for envy
This I know is true
I am an envious of the people
In whose heart are parts of you

Green is the colour
Of grass that smells so sweet
When cut and walked upon
Feeling soft beneath my feet

Green can be the ocean
Sometimes still, but also wild
Lashing the small boats
Frightening man women and child

But my green, are my eyes
Changing colour with each mood
Can be quietly emerald
When life is calm and good

But when a storm breaks over me
The colour you’ll see is jade
As heart and mind wrestle
To walk the path that has been laid

Laid for me to follow
Lined with hope and fears
Each step i take i falter
Can’t see because of tears

So bring out the sun to guide me
Burn away these clouds of doubt
Sprinkle a little raindrop
Showing me the way out.

Out into your sunshine
In your garden of content
Where the perfume of life
Is love, the purest scent

A little bit of happiness
Mixed with trust and loyalty too
Held together with love
So it smells of you.
 
Finally

Green is for Ireland
Love of St Patrick is portrayed
By wearing the Shamrock
In the Paddy’s Day parade

    Green is my favorite color so I just love everything green! Unfortunately my eyes are brown, nowhere close to being green! My sister's eyes have every color within them, so whatever clothes she decides to where that color shines through! You have written a fantastic write my friend! I'm glad that I stopped by to read this delightful poem this afternoon! What a fun piece, Great Work!!

    Nice change of pace after reading the other one. Emerald eyes eh, bet those are absolutely adorable. I think there is a song called everything's gone green, maybe from a band from england lol. They may have been called New Order or something like that. I enjoyed the poem very much. I know I don't comment as much now, but I'm still reading.
