Feeling A Different Color Blue
I Can't Explain It Yet
I am battling the demons from within
They are not seen but they make me cough and wheeze
I wonder how could they of come without me knowing
I must of let my guard down and they found an underground tunnel to dig their way through and let themself in
I will fight you with my every last breath
You come at me the strongest in the night when I am a sleep and resting
You come silently and don't show yourself until I wake
Then you take my voice away and I fight to get it back
I take the my special potion that will kick you in the behind
It makes me a bit weary but I can get twenty winks
This gives me more time to think
I have a plan to finish you for good
I feel the chills that you give me when you are near
I will not show you any fear
I may be slow getting up and bending over
You have attacked me and taken me off guard
I will return with reinforcements and I will scare the bejesus out of you
I want you to run not hide
That hide of yours I want to tan butt good
So you will think next time when you try to come back
I don't want to see you around any of my friends either
You have no good in my life and you should be shown your own gravestone
I am a fair man and will give you every chance to redeem yourself even though you have no good qualities
As you stop and think is this the life that you want to lead
Making people sick and causing them their greatest pain
You tell me this is the only life you know
I say it is time to change and I am showing you how
But my ancestors have all been colds and flu's and have been hated for centuries
I can't break the tradition
Why not ?
You have friends here that will help and guide you on your way
But what will my family think ?
That you are brave enough to be your own person and that is an admirable trait
But what if they laugh at me for being so foolish ?
They tell me it can't be done and very soon I will come back with my head between my knees and then I will pay the price
They are trying to scare you
Don.t let them
I know we have not been the best of friends
Actually we have been enemies since we met
I have cursed you since the day I was born
But all this can change here and now
How do I know for sure ?
You have to see what it is like to make someone happy ?
To put a smile on their face for no reason
The smile can stay there for days
No matter how hard people try they can't wash off that lovely grin
Some people think it is the supernatural at work
I know it is just the beautiful power from within
It has only one wish and that is to be shared and enjoyed by all
But I don't know
How can I trust you ?
That this is not a trick ?
To what make you sick ?
But I have hurt so so many
Yes that is true but it can stop right here and now
People can start to forgive you and all you have done
Then soon they will want to forget
We don't live in the past and the present is here today
Grab my hand and I will help you up
You are not a bad looking guy even though green and pale white is not my color
I am still not sure ?
What are you afraid of change?
Change can only make things better
But it takes time and you have to love your work
Well kind of think of it, I did have a lot of sick days last year and I have to work extra hard on school vacations and all holidays
We work every day but we don't call it work here
We call it play
What do you mean ?
I never ever, ever get to play ?
It was forbidden like smiling or laughing or having fun
We were confinced that this was the only life and not to listen to others
I am here for you whenever you need help
Is that true ?
Why did your family and friends leave you all alone?
Because every cold has to be brave and prove himself
Is that the way to live ?
Always trying to prove yourself
Well when do you rest
We get very little sleep and that makes us more cranky and miserable
So we can develop our best talents
What a waste
Here we sleep ever night and that is a must
A very few will try to challange that and when they do they end up paying the Piper
Who is the Piper ?
That is another story
Now don't you feel better not sneaking around and scaring people
Hiding in dark hallways and hiding with germs you call your friends
But now I have know one
No now you have everyone you ever wanted
Friends just keep popping up
We have lots of play time
Lots of smiles to deliver
It is a hard job but we do make it fun
We sometimes have to pull a graveyard shift
Some people are so stubburn the only time they smile is in their sleep
But soon as we give them the love bug and they come around
I love bugs
I am good at bugging people and I have given people the bug for years
No it is a different kind of bug
I am confused
Don't worry Rome wasn't built in a day
What is Rome ?
You don't get out much do you ?
Well we plan on many vacations and love the sun and the beaches
I have never been to the beach since we were told the rain and the slush is where we do our best work
They told us the beach is just a lot of sand in between your toes
So what would do all day
I usually hide on kleenex and wait
Well those days are over and now you have to go mingle
What is mingle?
It is where you get to meet new friends and have a few laughs
Where do I do that ?
You reallly don't know anything do you ?
One day at a time and we will learn together
Let's start you have to go out on the Hub Pages and meet as many people as you can
It is the best place to start and everyone helps everyone all the time
Wow that sounds like fun
Can I get started now ?
You already have
Can I do it again ?
You can and you don't have to ask me
Don't I have to get permission ?
Nope and you have to do it alone
But you said you would never leave me alone
No I am here if you need me but I want to see you have fun on your own
O,k, I want to thank you for helping me
No I want to thank you for seeing the life that you can live
See you later I am off to have all the fun one can have in one day
