They taught me I was broken, flawed,
And so I lived my life a fraud.
I hid the truth so deep inside,
Even from myself I’d hide.
You came and broke my chains, got rid of the facade.
I dreamed of being strange and weird,
And yet I constantly appeared
So ordinary, normal, drab.
My friends were cool and different, fab;
Devoid of colour, I was grey and dull and drear.
The door began to swing ajar,
And deep inside a rainbow star
Expelled the shadows, dim and grey,
Welcomed in the light so gay,
Revealed the colours in my soul so bright and clear.
