Black & White
Has there been a time when you never listened
Distracted by the words going around inside your head
Wishing instead that you’d taken more advice and wisdom
Now that you know your life hangs perilously by a thread
Have you ever stopped to look at shadows?
And thought to ask them how they might feel
Could it be like you they are standing on the gallows
Fed up with life’s constant turning of the wheel
You’ve always got what you wanted
And now you’re feeling tormented
Maybe because you feel you’ve run your last race?
You’re no longer part of the scene
It takes all of your energy to keep yourself clean
But you still want to prove that you’re not a hopeless case
Why can’t things be as plain as black and white?
Instead of different shades of grey complicating the in-betweens
Darkness will eventually succumb to the light
While nightmares still has no place in stifling your dreams
