I am Yellow

Yellow is the color of happiness,
It is the color of optimism,
It is the color of hope,
It is the color of enlightenment.

I am yellow.
From the clothes I wear,
To the colors I paint,
To the feelings I create.

I am the sunshine in peoples' day.
I am the smile upon their face.
I am the laughter echoing in their ears.
I am the happy memories remembered.

Because of me,
There's not a cloud in the sky.
Because of me,
The stars shine brighter at night.

Yellow is the color of cowardice,
It is the color of treachery,
It is the color of greed,
It is the color of death.

I am yellow.
From the clothes I have hidden,
To the colors I paint over,
To the feelings I have buried.

I am your sunshine while I soak in rain.
I am your smile while my heart is weighed down.
I am your laughter as I cry tears of pain.
I am your happy memories falsely forged.

Because of me,
There's not a cloud in your sky.
Because of me,
Your stars shine brighter at night.

I found a pile of unpublished poetry. I haven't been able to publish due to school and such so this is my chance to do so :)
