I am whiter than white
And greener than green
I am mauve, I am navy and all shades in between.
I am darker than black
Yet paler than cream
I am livid and shiny but fading like a dream.
I am juicy and soft
A deep gentle grey
I am heather and puce and vermilion today.
I wanted to grow up
Become vibrant lime
Now I pass the mirror and look different every time.
