My patchwork quilt, My life.
I liken my life to a patchwork quilt,
each square speaks volumes.
every pattern designed around my innermost feelings and emotions,
the brighter squares speak of gaiety and a carefree phase,
the red ones tell a story of love, unconditional, innocent and pure.
The interwoven hues of green, yellow and orange speak of happiness, joy and unpretentious fun.
Yes, there are some plain squares, either grey or dark blue for those days of uncertainty,fear and shadows of doubt, then the red ones seem to overshadow everything and become brighter and deeper and take on a colour of their own.
You will also see a black square right in the middle, that tells of a time everything I treasured, loved and stood for was on the verge of disintegrating, but right next to it, if you take a closer look, you will see a patch of silver, kind of like the silver lining in my dark cloud.
Scattered around that are the patches of the brightest, most beautiful reds you will ever see, that speak of love so intense and so real that I know for sure they will forever overshadow any future days of grey or blue.
Quite colourful you see, is my patchwork quilt, my life.
