Thank You For Being Lime Green

Thank you for being lime green
in a world of muted colors.
I’m sorry if I couldn’t always match you,
if I blended in with others.
 
Thank you for being a missing link
in a world of broken chains.
I’m sorry I couldn’t relieve
the depth and weight of your own pains.
 
Thank you for being a well
of love and joy and care.
I’m sorry the world ain’t pour back into you.
That shit just isn’t fair.
 
Thank you for being kind.
Thank you for being brave.
Thank you for never ever being well-behaved.
