in black and white

this war that we fight

colors keep changing

thoughts rearranging

shadows are stealing

approval is sealing

but my core is stale

my body turns pale

whiter than white

blacker than night

my eyes are so blind

too sane for my mind

blurred are my visions

making false decisions

make things right

black and white

been hearing nothing

yet my ears still ringing

with long-lost voices

lost all good choices

to reason enough

to call my own bluff

that day is night

and black is white

silenced the lambs

a sentence condemned

while guilty of sin

the person within

redeems himself

justice lies upon the shelf

painting new canvas

shunning the worst, alas

for white and black

conquer the stacks

of emotionless faces

turn jaded good graces

into sweeter smiles

no more faded denials
