The Colors of the Rainbow

The colors of the rainbow

what does it mean?

The beauty of the Earth

that's what it seem

The red in the rainbow

at the very top

the red in the rainbow

doesn't mean stop

The orange comes next

and wants to be seen

so it pushes on the red

and goes to the extreme

The yellow's quite different

Doesn't care where it's placed

but wants to show off

so shines up its bright face

The green is a joker

always wants to play

sometimes a little freaky

in its own way

The blue is very mellow

doesn't really relate

in its own little world

and only believes in fate

The purple's down below

and has alot of pride

does what ever it wants

has nothing to hide

The colors of the rainbow

I see them everyday

it lives with me in my house

So does this mean I'm Gay?

    lovely description of the



lovely description of the rainbow, your use of words really brought it to life; I'll look more closely at a rainbow next time I see one. As to your question on sexuality, I guess a lot of differing genders are very fond of rainbows too. Liked your poem very much, a real thoughtfull poem.
