pink skies for dark eyes

July 15, 2011

I saw a pink sky yesterday. It filled the dark city from the top, covered it with feathers and glitter. The city, well known for being desolate and ugly, gained a different ground. It embraced the pink and boasted its urban lights, flickering with joy.
Cities are all dark maybe, but this particular one was the champion before my eyes. Champion for being the darkest and ugliest.
We are champions too when it comes to seeing the ugly and being the ugly. At heart at least. Our vision is blocked and we bleed dark rivers outside. Our depressive and broken hearts cry out loud.
But the sky is there. Blue, white and even pink!
Even when it’s dark and cloudy, it still offers light, or at least wind to cool our dying hearts.
The sky is endless and it is our limit to appreciate life. Our lives are endless too with myriad of opportunities. We have the right to turn them into blues and pinks or windy blacks.
We are the limit to our joy and sadness.
The sky is too generous and is never hiding from us, it is always there to show us how to embrace the darkened ones.
It embraces us.
Why don’t we embrace ourselves and accept our darkness?
Let the pink cover you, wash you with joy.
Let the blue take you away.
Let the white soothe you.
Let the cloudy black refresh you.
Just let the endless skies heal you and hush.
