Shades Of Grey - Poem by Sian Kyle

Nothing’s black and white anymore, it’s just a hundred thousand shades of grey
I live in a world where nothing’s as it seems, it’s kill or be killed
Always on the run from some invisible hunter hiding round the corner
Nothing’s ever simple, there’s always complications and twists
Irony and misery, jealousy and slavery, no-one ever will be free
Isn’t it strange how as soon as you thought that your life was great,
Something goes wrong and you’re back to square one,
Thought you had it easy for once but always wrong,
Our world is built of a millon lies and a million tears over something worthless
Wish I could just take a rubber and sketch my world, a perfect world
Instead of the mess that I’m living here when all I can feel is my heart being torn in two
Best friends, backstabbers, heartbreak, true love blended into one hellish life
Can’t believe I’m surviving day to day when all I want to do is just end it all
Everyday another blur of hurt and pain and lies
And no-one’s there to pick up the pieces when I fall apart and tell me it’ll be OK
Even when it won’t be, because nothing’s ever OK, not in my life
I’m told to get used to it, I’ll be here for a while yet, and that no-one cares
That’s the lesson everyone’s taught round here, and everyone needs it to survive
