Rainbow Colored Camouflage

Hues and shades of pinks, purples and 
blues reveal my intimate desires for change. 
I’ve been to the mountains and seen the 
islands of Hawaii and yet, my need to 
conceal my hopes and dreams remain. 
No further from tomorrow I await my 
dreamlike passion to disguide my heart 
with a veil showering me like a rainbow. 
I see night and day and through the pain 
I know the reason for this desire is simple. 
I feed off beauty, yet thirst for obscurity. 
I crave the soft comfort of a spectrum 
leading me to distant fantasies. 

              chameleon...and medallion…

These hues bring a kaleidoscope of revelation 
I need for my existence. Before I became a 
woman of hope I was a girl of discouragement. 
Selfish and full of doubt for all things good 
in my life. Until the day came I erased my 
pessimism, I had been shadowed by the ebony 
of darkness. Now I shall endure the chimera 
of my cloak and stay hidden through a shroud 
of beauty. My reason is simple. My idea is pure. 
If I blind everyone from what pain is found under 
masquerade, maybe…just maybe the world will 
see me as I wish to see myself one day. Full of 
the majestic colors of a rainbow. So, my rainbow 
colored camouflage shall remain shielding me 
from a world of discrimination and cruelty. 
I shall shine forever in the mist leading me 
to the land of make believe.
