Your life is your own canvas,
your very own piece of paper.
Fate may hand out primary colours
but you can always select others.
It’s you who finally paints it.
If you don’t let the brush
slip away from your hands.
You can give it a lovely form!
If the starting is not right
don’t fret over some lousy lines.
Give them a shape, or cover
those dark lines with happy colours.
If life hands you shades of gray
borrow some colours from your heart
and make the picture perfect.
Every life has its grays, no picture is spared.
