Black And White
I wish the world were black and white
No shades of grey,
It would be so much easier
If things were that way
Why can’t things just be simply?
Why all these twist and turns,
It complicates everything
Saying something and afraid of being burnt
Many people say the world is black and white
Oh how wrong they are,
Human are deceiving
The truth is always so far
Locked deep inside is the truth
But it’s something no one will ever hear
Will it hurt too many people?
This is something everyone fears
‘Ignorance is bliss’
Isn’t that what they say,
Maybe I should pretend the world is black and white
And not these shades of grey
To shut my eyes to the real world
And ignore the truth,
This is something I cannot do.
I am not one of those stupid youths
The world is not black and white
This is something I must accept,
I’ll have to live in grey
Until my death.
