Making The Dark Go Away...

Making The Dark Go Away...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee... 2013

A sad, unhappy woman made her way down the aisle
Of the store she was in... she stopped to look
At socks of many colors, stripes and polka dots

She thought how beautiful the colors were
Grabbed up packs of them, put them in her cart
She needed color in her life to drive away the dark

The dark that threatened to take over her world
Fill it with depression, unhappiness... grief
No!  No, I can not let it happen again, she thought

Colors!  I need colors... throw the dark ones away
She walked down another aisle in the store
Began filling her cart with many things, many ... colors!

Soon, she was in line to pay for her purchases
Out the door, into her car driving down the road
Once at home, she took her many colors inside her house

Laid them all out until... all she could see was happiness
Happiness all around her... no darkness lingered
She had colored her world with many colors, making the dark go away
