Phases. Transitory time patches
Grouped or characterised by a theme.
A shade, a colour, a tangible
And identifiable sameness.
Phase of fashion.
Reflecting an idea.
Perhaps marking self out as distinct.
Separating self from the others.
Our first phases feel self-defining.
Feel so ultimately real we know
we’ll never change. We’ll represent our
tribe, our belief, our heart forever.
And after many fruitful guises,
Our true colours shine through. The rainbow
Phases we’ve decorated our lives
With reflect our true, heart-worn colours.
