They say life is a book
And somewhere someone up there has written it
How your destiny plays out
Who you gonna marry and have kids with
When you are going to kill yourself.
I say, yes, maybe it is
A book. Maybe it is a coloring book,
Where you take your crayons (when you are young),
Your color pencils (not so young)
Watercolors (when more responsible)
Oils (when u discover canvas)
And maybe even Microsoft Paint.
But you know it might not be such a book.
I reckon its a book with lots of dots or dashes.
The pictures aren’t quite neatly outlined to be colored in.
No it aint simply a matter of keeping within the lines or choosing sensible colors
What if you cannot even make up shapes
Nor know exacctly how to connect the dots
The dots guide me – do they really?
I don’t know anymore.
Its a coloring book, but I
Might just draw smiley faces in it
