The Little Girl in Yellow

In a world that is gray and wet and dark
There is a little girl in yellow
A yellow rain coat and hat with a polka dot umbrella
Daring to be different, to be happy
To act as the one ray of sunshine in a bleak world
Some stare at her scornfully, angry she flaunts her joy and rubs it in their faces
Some grow nostalgic, wishing to be young and free again, free of life’s troubles
Some smile at the little girl, innocently splashing in puddles
And others completely ignore her, not wanting to know what they never had
But those who watch her don’t know that her life isn’t perfect
They don’t know that she has burdens and worries
They don’t know that she decided to be strong
To lift her face to the rain and let the drops wash away her deep pain
They don’t know that she decided to find happiness in the little things
The little girl in yellow found her happiness and it changed her
Which is why she dares to wear yellow and dance in the rain
Because she knows that she is stronger and can overcome her hurt
And she knows that if a small child can do it, anyone can
