Life is not, black or white, only shades of gray…
Rather dull, don’t you think? Let your color play.




 Dichotomy


I want to ying your yang,
but I don't know,
if you're black or white?

Sometimes you're up,
sometimes you're down.
But are you wrong,
or are you right?

Sometimes you sing,
sometimes you cry.
Is it day or night,
when you look at the sky?

Are you rich or poor,
in everyone's' sight?
Are you in the dark,
or out in the light?

Are you liberal,
but conserve your cash?
Do you recycle,
or throw out the trash?

Are you idealistic,
more down to earth?
A boy or a girl,
at your birth?

Is in heaven or hell,
that you are worth?
Think that it is time,
to get down to earth.

And bask in the middle,
of the road.
Where you're likely squashed,
like a toad.

Yes! Squashed flat! It seems we either got to be this or that. I prefer to be whatever!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this poetic romp, and its own sense of balance.

How true, and how sad. Most everyone seems to be extremely one sided today, and they have little or no tolerance for those on the other side.

There are a lot of questions in this poem. I think or hope I'm a bit of everything. Thank you for reading my poem.

!!! Grey is a mug's game, but this sure brings out the schizophrenic in my own grey cells! I very much like how you've expressed this quandary, Ron. Perhaps we suffer from information overload which makes out-and-out decisiveness difficult for most brains. I'll just aim for a colourful splat! :)) xx

Very well thought out,my friend, and you have broached a subject that makes many uneasy. We all carry parts of us we dare not show the world for whatever reason we think of. As someone named Bill once said, "All the world's indeed a stage / And we are merely players: / Performers and portrayers, / Each another's audience / Outside the gilded cage."."
