The Rainbow Challenge

Be a RAINBOW in someone's life today. Now's the time!
Be A Rainbow
Have you ever thought in its several forms
That many humans on Earth experience their darkest storms?
Ominous clouds roll in, the blue sky soon fades
And the sun that once shined has now been delayed.
And through these darkest storms many wished to see
A colorful rainbow sent miraculously.
So my challenge for you is try to discover
The rainbow you are and your true rainbow colors.
Red and orange, yellow, green, and blue
Indigo and violet will describe every part of you.
And as you display your colors make them bright
Because each color you display will be one's healing light.
The more rainbows you are the more it will appear
That each storm that rumbles will soon disappear.
So call a friend or offer a hug
Say "I'm your rainbow" to a person you love.
Nurture the ill or assist the poor
Because that's what a rainbow's purpose is for.
Now if there's ever a time a storm blusters your way
Pray for a rainbow to show its colors today.
And when your rainbow appears at least I was told
Will quickly provide you its own pot of gold.
Today I'm your rainbow
During your time of need
And my spectrum of colors
Will heal you guaranteed.
And as long as you struggle
I'll be there for you
Radiating my colors
To help you get through.
So please take my rainbow
As my true gift of love
That will shed healing light
As I hover above.
