True Colors

Sure. She is dark. Gothic. Alone. I won't deny that for her. In a sense everyone would be. Really. But ever since I had first laid eyes on her, she intrigued me. I knew she wasn't the person everyone thought she was. But heck, she was so good at hiding her real self even I was fooled at some point.

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

I still remember the time when we first got to know each other a little better. That was after she went berserk on Dr. Light and after she blew up my breakfast. I was touchy then. Insecure, goofy... annoyingly persistent. I'm proud to say I still am though.

Then I went to say sorry. She had disappeared.

Cyborg had his eyes on me and forced me to make sure I said sorry. In a way it's all his fault. And in the other, I owe it all to him.


But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

So we waltzed into her room, well I did anyway. I regret saying that we couldn't trust her. I really do. But if I didn't, then I wouldn't have went into her room to do some snooping and I wouldn't have gotten to where I am now.

Then I found her wearing pink. Really you must try your hardest to imagine what a shock that was, and then hearing her laugh... it blew me out of my mind. Especially when she said, " Sure, Beastboy, I always thought you were funny! But hey, look aren't everything right?" If I hadn't been so shocked at that declaration, I would have laughed my head off. Literally.

And then the sad one, timid. She apologized for everything, and I mean everything, mean she had said or done to us. It got a bit unbearable at times. But the gesture was still there and always will be. She won't have to apologize ever again. If she does, well... I doubt we'll ever come to that point.

Then the green marine...hey! Dude! That rhymes! Anyways... We met sides to her I didn't even know existed. And then... the most powerful one of them all. We fought, we hoped, and we won. She didn't want us to help, but we did, and a good thing to. She need support, but no one was there to give it to her. We did, unintentionally at first.

Show me a smile then,
Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

Ever since, I have taken it upon myself to make her smile. Or laugh, the latter being more rewarding but I only managed the first a few times. Barely. She was smiling at me. Not because I was funny, because I had made a fool of myself. Go figure.

But really, you can't judge a book by it's cover, if you do, you tend to miss the most wonderful things in life. Trust me, I learned that from experience.

Even though she never opened up to me, and probably never will, but I learned from her after she defeated her Father, Trigon at then end of the world, always keep hoping.


And I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Always.
