Colours of Sadness

Try to explain colour to someone
who has been blind since birth.

You can tell them that yellow is the colour of lemons,

and green is the colour of the earth.

No matter how many times you explain
that blue is the colour of the sky,

they will never comprehend

those colours in their mind.


The sadness that I’m feeling

works much in the same way.

You can’t explain depression

to someone who’s only ever been okay.
