Procrastination rules the nation!

I met a girl

The other day

Bright cloths

Bright hair

Bright smile

Everything great

Everything wonderful


I met a girl

The other day

She was so bright

It was blinding

She could have used

A touch of grey


I met a boy

The other day

Pretty hair 

Pretty face

Pretty abs

Everything awesome

Everything rad


I met a boy 

The other day

So pretty

It was distracting

He could have used 

A touch of grey


I met a friend 

The other day

Life was great

Life was fun

Life was grand

Everything was promising 

Everything was planned


I met a friend 

The other day

So full of life

It was exhausting

They could have used

A touch of grey


I met myself

The other day

Grey smile

Grey laugh

Grey lies

Everything predictable

Everything despised


I met myself

The other day

So grey

It was depressing

I could have used

A touch of brightness

A touch of prettiness

A touch of life

I love how this flows and rhymes perfectly, it is most definitely a masterpiece, I really loved it. Everything just...fits, I guess. It's beautiful, with a tough of sadness and overall, it's amazing. Two thumbs up!
