Shades Of Grey

 

I live my life in grey.

Sometimes it’s light, not far from white

and that’s a day when things seem alright.

 

Mostly it’s a mid-tone,

half way between the two extremes

where things see-saw on a broken swing.

That’s okay, liveable.

 

Some days the grey is dark as coal,

and then the effort seems too much.

These are the days I’d like to sleep away...

but I can’t.

 

I guess the day that I hit black

will be the one of no turning back...

 

I live my life in grey.

I feel you when you talk about just wanting to sleep all day. I like how you use different colors to describe the way you feel.

My life also, sometimes at least; sometimes I swear a black cloud is permanently welded to my neck; excellent, Hull

I join you in the grey, Hulla. It's the best place to be, the complex place, the interesting place, the place where the simple pat answer isn't allowed.

Black and white are not all their made out to be, I reckon. Thanks for giving this a read, Mark.
