Mood ring changes blue, green, black
from childhood to…well I dye my hair so you can’t tell.

My high school diary reads as black gloom, a steady diet
Of negative emotion…bratty if I must say.

My slim days of college like a magic 8 ball,
shake it up…blue happiness to  black cape depression.

A breakthrough came when my dad pushed me
In the direction of the United States Navy.

Well that marble must have been rolling around
in his head, considering I might stay at home forever

or lead a dead end existence.
My mood ring had never been so vibrant -

hues of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple!
I can see the ocean in the sky,

ride the purple waves of life,
with an adventurer by my side.

I often think: oh you, of little faith!
God sees potential while you stare at the sky.

With Hawaii came double rainbows,
places I never knew I wanted to see,

a fantastic place to raise my family
on sweet pineapple and boogie boards.

I change, kind of like a chameleon, making
the most of life, with each grand breath.

I’d say I have a rainbow heart, God’s promise
ingrained in me.  I hide in his presence.

You’ll find me playing double dutch
hopping over multicolored bows.

"That marble rolling around in his head" I got a chuckle out of that line // I remember mood rings...haven't seen one in years.
