The day I remembered I am free to feel whatever I like

If one day you discover joy

Hidden in tubes and splashes of colour

Don’t try to become the master of joy.

Learning the technique of joy

Is like putting structure into your emotions

Like drawing lines between this and that

Between how it is and how it should be

When emotions are supposed to mingle.

When you choose a colour

You’re not hidding the opposite

They live peacefully together.

I don’t want to be the master of joy anymore

I just want to feel it

In peace with myself and the rainbow of emotions.

This is not a poem

Although it has these strange breaks at the end of the row

And this is not a painting

It’s just joy splashed on canvas
