It’s not easy being the wrong shade of pink.

Kermit the frog sang about how it was not easy being Green.  Well Kermie, my friend, it isn’t easy being the wrong shade of Pink either.

So with apologies to Kermit, and whoever wrote the original lyrics, here is my version.

It’s not that easy being pink
Having to be the colour of breast cancer survivors
When I think it could be nicer being Stage Zero, One or Two
Or something much more acceptable like that

It’s not easy being pink                                                                                                                                                                                                                           It seems you blend in with so many others with early stage BC
And people tend to pass you over
‘Cause you’re not one of them
A pink survivor who expects to make it through
Like stars in the sky

But pink’s the colour of my dreams
And pink can be cool and friendly-like
And pink can be big like an ambition
Or important like a cause
Or tall like a goal to aim for

When pink is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
Some think that I’m the wrong shade of pink.
I am metastatic pink, and it’ll do fine
It’s beautiful, and I think it’s what inspires me to be me.
