One night I was cleaning out my closet
And I came across a rainbow that had been long unnoticed.
Startled and confused, I shoved it into a drawer,
And taped it shut.
The drawer pulled at me night and day
Needing to be opened.
I continued cleaning,
Trying to find myself in the mess.
I realized that I'd seen myself around somewhere,
But I couldn't remember where I was.
Then one night the drawer sprung a leak
And the rainbow came seeping out.
And by the time it was finished,
I knew I had myself
And I was ready for the rest of the world to see me as well.
