Leaves change colors,
I change blue.

Blue like the rose
That fails to exist

Blue like the water
That is now brown

Brown from the pollution
That we ourselves cause

Pollution from the tears,
Headaches,
Heartaches,
And hurt.

Leaves change colors,
I change blue.

Blue in a world where everything is brown.
