The Rain, Tears, and Rainbow

The sun

Life began like a sun shimming in the daylight

Until the truth blinded the boy

He is different

This he did not know

 

Summer arrived

But it came with rain

The truth

The truth

Is the only answer

 

How can one learn to love?

Live?

Breathe?

 

What was this moment

A moment of uncertainty

 

When society has standards

And you are different

 

You spend your summer in the rain.

Uncertain of your feelings

How was I supposed to know?

That there was a rainbow in my blood

 

You spent of summer being unsure

Not understanding

Questioning

And hiding your Emotions

 

To return to school to repeat history

 

Fall comes

You spill the truth

Luckily your friends,

Love you,

 

The Autumn Ball Arrives

You conceal yourself,

 

You asked her, but you already told her.

 

You play this game like a mannequin,

You pretend to hide in the shadows

The rain grows stronger

 

Your feelings grow on grow

Like the roots of an ancient tree

To only learn this is not to be

 

The truth is spilt once again,

 

You learn to heal, but the rain is still there

You went back to preform on the stage

To only find you are

In a cage.

 

You finally embrace the rainbow

You reach out to the teacher

 

Your screaming for help,

But you cannot speak,

 

Your numb to the core,

The shell must break

You vanquish the demon

How made you fear hate.

 

You fight against the demon’s past

to finally

Let the rainbow come through the rains last

 

You move yourself to the top of the throne

To tell the family

Reality…

 

The wings of the rainbow are cut

To bleed black and white

Society’s expectations

Versus

Your life

 

The tears of

Denial

Rejection

Sorry

Flow through

 

Only to slowly heal again

The demons of the past

Are gone

 

You walked the line of

Rain

Rainbow

and Tears

 

You rise up again.

Love is love.

 

You cannot change your feelings

 

I am at peace and the lost boy

Is not lost

Rather he is healing
