Gray rainbow

This child, me, 
gray, dark, ugly. 
Not much colors in life, 
nothing.
At most different shades. 
I tried my very best 
to paint but without 
brushes
paint 
and sparkling glitter 
I realized this is not for me. 
This child, me 
was not destined for love and sparkling thoughtfulness. 

I did not 
        fit  
    in.
This child, me 
odd,
different
gray
never accepted, never to be really known. 

In therapy I came to accept 
my parent would never be
supporting 
cheering
loving. 
They will not be at my wedding
celebrating this child, me
no longer gray.
Together with the woman of 
my life.
We paint the skies in rainbows,
my inside now filled with love 
in places I only thought 
sorrow would fit.
