Everyone has a story; just some are more interesting to read than others.

Green is an oak tree standing sturdy and tall
Green is the meadow's grass cushioning your fall
Green is the flowers pollen producing your phlegm
Green is the thorns of a rose's thin stem
Green tastes like fresh watermelon consumed in the sun
Green smells like nature, tree sap, spring fun
Green sounds like leaves rustling at the soles of your shoes
Green feels like the pain of a freshly formed bruise
Green makes me jovial, benevolent, one nation
Green is imperfectness, love, and creation

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not pray for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
