Life in all its colours

As all the colours in the spectrum
combine to make white light,
and all the instruments in an orchestra
combine to play a symphony—
all of life’s experiences
make up who we are.
Frustrations, happiness,
disappointments and joy,
anger, sadness,
hope and love
create the colours
which, woven together,
tell our life story.
I’ve come to see that
the dark times are just as valid
as the light ones.
Like the minor chords
which form part of the accompaniment
to even pieces written in major keys,
it is in the darkness
that we understand the light.
It is by experiencing life’s struggles
that we learn to appreciate its calm,
and by experiencing sadness
that we can really understand joy.
Each colour is individual,
yet somehow becomes more vivid
in comparison to others.
So learn to embrace them all —
that’s my goal, in any case.
