Skinned Knees

Lizardman

Skinned Knees
Lizardman

 

LizardMan felt red
so his world was red too
until things changed and the Lizard felt blue.

His world followed suit
and blue was all he saw
with not a single trace of the red he knew before.

Everything was blue
it’s all that could be seen
until the heart of LizardMan changed from blue to green."

I wrote this poem after noticing how all consuming my attitudes towards things could be. Once I'd decided what my opinion was on something, I'd transform my whole world to fit that opinion. Lizardman is also written in response to how fickle and quickly these all consuming attitudes can change.
