    Some folks get
    THE BLUES
    But mine go much deeper
    They get down and dirty
    Purple and murky
    More like
    THE INDIGOS
    And I feel like
    I just don’t know
    what to do
    where to go
    who to see
    what to pray
    to make
    THESE INDIGOS
    gone on away
    But deep down
    Way Way down,
    On some ultraviolet level
    that’s beyond my vision
    I taste
    I feel
    I relish
    I savor
    THESE INDIGOS
    Cause they sho nuff make
    My rise back
    From the violet misty depths
    Sweeter
    THOSE INDIGOS
    know
    They just can’t
    Defeat her
    But for now
    I just wants
    To wallow
    To taste when I
    Swallow
    these bittersweet
    INDIGOS

    When you are feeling blue
    come to the house of light
    where I can take your dark skies
    and make them bright
    with the light of love
    that flows from above
