Secretly sad ray of light,
similar feelings as I write.
Color shines as it blends,
don’t really know where it ends.
They made the name how it looks,
as I read from the books,
many people use it for happiness,
I use it as a symbol of sadness.
Will it ever satisfy me,
if I see the rainbow at the sea?
And as I walk towards the water,
deeper I go would that even matter.
The rain just started pouring,
the rainbow would stop appearing.
Why can’t rainbow just stay?
or we have the same thought to fade away?
As the water rises from my body,
the louder the scream of everybody.
I want to see the perspective of the rainbow,
if I go up the heaven, will you ever see me glow?
