I’ve always loved this song by Cyndi Lauper and had her album back in the 1980s.
We are singing a version in choir this season which is similar to the original but slightly different.
Her song was the source of inspiration for my poem and inspirational poster today.
I am using one of my favourite subjects, my cat Kobie to create my poster about True Colours. (Note the extra "u" for Canadians who tend to cling to the British spellings!)
First impressions are not always right
They’re fuzzy like an old faded pic,
You see the person in a hazy light
You don’t know yet what makes them tick,
Like an old Polaroid photo from years gone by ,
The person gradually appears,
You can’t rush the process, so don’t even try
Sometimes it takes many years,
Over time, the truth is revealed
You start to see them in every hue,
Like an onion with the layers peeledTheir true colors come shining through!
This April I am participating in the A-Z Challenge
and the NaPoWroMo Challenge NaPoWriMo where I will write a post and a poem for each letter of the alphabet each day in April except for Sundays.
