A new canvas sits on the stand before me,
I shift over; why don’t you move in a little?
With a brush in hand, dip into your palette –
What we paint will be a brand new future.
Our visions, different yet seemingly coincide;
If I paint a flower, how will you percieve it?
For everything is not always as it appears,
Nor will it always as what someone says.
If you search within your heart, deep within,
I guarantee that you will find the truth.
Let our visions interwine, let the paint mix,
Create a world of new colours unintentionally.
This masterpiece, belonging to you and I alone,
We’ll share it with the world, touching hearts;
Perhaps we can all unite together under the sky.
This canvas may be blank for now, but remember,
If we move forward with passion without deter,
Someday, the vision of our hearts will be reflected –
There is no greater expression than from within.
Together, we shall paint our futures in colour.
