This poem is part of my “Color Me Happy” series on my poetry site. I thought readers here might enjoy it as well.
When you feel your emotions are starting to sink,
When you’re fed up with politics and all the stink,
When you’re so mad your panties are all in a kink,
When losing your sanity’s just on the brink,
And why should you choose such a color, you ask?
Because when we choose in pink’s color to bask,
We’re cuddled and coddled in this pleasant shade.
It pampers and pets us and makes our hearts glad.
God, in His infinite wisdom did choose
Pink as a color important to use
When bringing the dawn of a new day alive
And when setting the sun to usher in night.
There’s something quite primal in pink I have found —
Something so elemental it’s almost profound.
We respond as if there’s an umbilical link.
So whatever the problem — to fix it, think pink.
