The chords are still settling into their places, but I did it in an hour!
Each day I add another brushstroke to my portrait
Each day another little change you barely see
Each stroke is small and insignificant and short, yet
Each stroke’s another little step in making me.
I try to see beyond the image in the mirror
I try to look through other eyes to see myself
Each day the picture that I’m painting’s getting clearer
Until one day it takes its place upon the shelf.
Some days I add a little burst of shining colour
Some days I make the lines look darker and more deep
Some days I try but everything looks somehow duller
Some nights I paint in grey while desperate for sleep.
And every day I’ve ever lived goes in the mixture
And every day’s a layer in some wild design
One day you’ll see the label reads “Unfinished picture”
One day you’ll read my life in every painted line.
