Black terror in white calm, 

Truth in lies, 

Lies in truth, 

Inner peace in a black void. 


The storm rages overhead, 

A shelter built of will, 

Untouchable by the torrent. 


A man sits in silence 

Legs crossed, 

Head bowed, 

Eyes turned inward, 

To the beautiful universe that is the mind. 


A mountain sits, 

Untouched by the black rains, 

Its white peaks cutting the dark clouds in two 

Unmovable stone in a vortex of chaos. 


Two wills clash 

Sparks of black and white fly, 

Painting the ground grey. 


Spreading grey, 

Covering the hills and oceans, 

Black and white no more. 


For there are truth in lies, 

Lies in truth, 

Black and white, 

Dancing forever together, 

In the spiral of grey.
