Shades of Grey
Life is seldom black and white
we live in shades of grey,
drifted too long in half forgotten dreams
sailed in rivers and streams
watched suns set on days the same as it rose,
but shades of grey fill most days,
wash the color of both suns
leave the world quiet.
A deep blue sky matches a deep blue sea
but both are washed in the same shades of grey,
To some this makes for a sad and dreary world,
but comfort and peace can be most welcome
when days are too hectic,
to loud and too bright.
Shades of grey are like rainy days,
and everyone knows
we need a little rain some days.
