I know I'm late.

The following post was supposed to have happened a long time ago, so I apologize that it wasn't on time. 

Dear life, 

Our most recent learning hub project was supposed to be poetry or song lyrics. Below is a poem I wrote in my spare time. 


I see blue in the trees, and grass.

I see blue in my wandering eyes, and my trembling hands.

I feel blue in the clothes on my back, and shoes on my feet.

I feel blue in the wind through my hair, and the stones beneath my fingers.

I hear blue in the cries, and screams.

I hear blue in the gentle sobs, and the soft whimpers.

I taste blue in the air, and mint.

I taste blue in the sweet candy, and the cold metal.

I smell blue in the pine needles, and soil.

I smell blue in the harsh flames, and the soggy wood.

I see blue.
I feel blue.
I hear blue.
I taste blue.
I smell blue.

I am blue. 

I was inspired to write this poem, while walking home from school. I remarked how my blue sweater blended so perfectly into my suburbia, how I felt blue. This was also influenced by some of my favourite songs, Blue, and Suburbia, both by Troye Sivan. I love these songs, and recommend that you give them a listen too. 

Sincerely, Emily ;)
