Ode to HIghlighters

One time of taking notes

That’s all I needed

One glance at the bright color

Convinced me:

I want to be a highlighter

I want to be lime green

I want to be laser lemon

Filled up with neon ink

Has never looked so bright

Let me be hot pick

And I promise

I won’t ever change my mind

Yes, I’ll risk running out of color

Just let me be a highlighter

Floating around with all your other supplies

I’m still glowing

It’s not a surprise

I still remain in your case

More shaken up than used

Forget your wimpy pen

Very boring and dull so,

I’ll turn back towards you

And you can turn me into the high light

Hurry up

Time is ticking

For me to be

What I have always wanted
