i'd like to ask the sun if she could always shine down on me
so that i could be a rainbow when people look at me.
i'd like them to be able to see my colors.
i'd like to ask the wind if she could gently
blow on me
so that i can twist in the wind
but remain grounded.
and i won't even mind if the rain
falls down on me and rusts me.
because even though i'm weathered, i can
i think i'll ask them if that could be possible.
