It took me a while to decide what to say and write for this exciting challenge, which Simon from Pen On Website nominated me and kindly exempt from his one rule ( THANKS ) because I’m not into Selena Gomez song…
Shut it hardcore Selena fans.
I’m her fan too, but her as an actress. I have every right to dislike her songs just as I respect you for loving her music.
The one I’ll be sharing is “True Color” by Cyndi Lauper. Many may not know it because this song is 33 years old. Almost old as me.
😒 yes, I passed 30 so give it a rest!
Here’s a part of the lyrics that I like the most:
Its hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small
But I see your true colors
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow
Here’s a my micro-fiction inspired from the song: “Under the Mask”
Anywhere he goes, people steps aside. Parting like an ocean giving way to the king. Except he’s not treated with kindness. Because he’s always cover in cut and bruises.
“They should put that delinquent to jail,” said one of the woman to her friend.
“Yes, he give this neighborhood a bad name.”
Yeah, just like that everyone judge him, they hates how he wore those signs of beating like a badge, annoyed that he still walks with head held up high. The moment he see me, he smiled.
I greeted him with a hug and let him buried his face on the crook of my neck. I caressed his back.
His shoulder trembled. “I want to do so much. I feel so powerless.”
“You take the beating for your younger sister, and I think that’s a brave thing.”
“One day, I’ll give her the justice she deserves. I’ll make everyone see what a monster they are.”
In the meantime, he’s sacrificing himself. This boy that everyone think is a devil, is an angel in disguise. And no matter what they say, I’ll be here for him because only I know the real him, this strong but fragile man that will forever be ruling my heart.
