Thankful I Have Design

My life is not always a pretty picture.
There are green people,
yellow people

and scary, red people.

There are unsightly edges and fuzzy corners

There is tacky
There is shallow

There is petty

I am thankful I have design
I can re-arrange,
revamp, change the colors
Offset the flaws
Highlight the good things

My life is not always a bad picture

There are pink people,

peach people

and people the color of sky

There are things that work

And things that won't

But most things to me, bring joy
There is depth

There is substance

With design,
I can make a backdrop,
A life of pretty pictures

Of different perspectives

To design a life of wonders, of bests...
