Prompt: bring the world to life
 
A crayons life
 
Do crayons wear pants to
Do they paint the sunset with a different hue
Do they drink their coffee in the morning
And do they paint it brown
Is life colorless and boring
Or do they have to paint the town
Do they see things in black and white
Or do they have to paint the stars in the sky
Can they see the moon at night
Or do they lay in bed wondering why
If crayons wore pants to
Would they have one leg or two
Would they paint the sun in tangerines
Or throw in a splash of yellow
Would they paint the grass in different shades of greens
And would it all be done by the same fellow
Would they be kind in there pastel life
Or would they be angry and mad
Would they paint the edges on every knife
Or would they be bitter and sad
Id like to think they be happy inside
They'd have lots of love far and wide
Would they always live inside of the box
Or be risky and live on the edge
Would they run around without socks
Or just wear one instead
I would like them to paint my world
With brilliant pinks and gold
I would watch as the colors are swirled
And see the beauty unfold
If crayons did wear pant too
They would be in colors of red and blue
They would kiss there children before bed
And they would love there self
They'd have colorful dreams in there head
As i placed there box on the shelf
