~ It’s Not Easy Being Green ~
It’s not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that
It’s not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over ’cause you’re
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky
But green‘s the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree
When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful
And I think it’s what I want to be
It’s also not easy being the runner in the boot. Not to toot my own horn at all, but I am known as the “runner” in the apartment building I live in. I lost count of how many times I had to tell people “why” I am wearing a boot. I’ve had people saying things like “did you break your leg”? “Is that a cast?” “Oh no”
I play it down and say something like “it’s just my tendon, no biggie”.
The boot is the color of “healing” It’s grey. The boot is cool and friendly-like. Because the boot takes on the personality of its wearer and if anything, I am cool and friendly-like. The boot is big, well like a boot. And the boot can be important like a pretend cast, or tall like when a short person wears it. When the boot is all there is right now, I will faithfully wear that boot, because its what I want to do.
I made a decision. Even if I do not “run” Marine Corps Marathon, I will still head on over to DC to
