Black and white

I’ve witnessed the colours fade
Losing their vividness,
They retreat to the shade.
I’ve travelled far
With an engine of dreams,
Fuelling the stars.
I’ve observed cracks appear
In the eyes of others
In every blink, in every tear.
I vanquished control
Completed the puzzles
Only I could solve.
I paused, took a step back
And observed the world
Every inch, every crack.
Breathing in, breathing out
Absorbing the knowledge
Of what life is about.
I found the darkness in light
And the light in the darkness
But I now see more
Than Black and white

  4. I loved this. “But now I see more than Black and White.” An epiphany?

    Nice one learning to see life even when it’s “cracking” The destruction allowing us to see every shade, tiny, tone, every colour for worse or better.
