Black and White

October 11, 2007
By Aaron Elliott, Baldwin City, KS

Two colors
complete opposites
One being of pure happy sense
The other of bleak desolate sense
Both present in this world
Both a major influence
One has the pleasure of being revered
While the other is feared

While both are in all
Only one dominates
Those leading happy lives have the white
Those leading sad lives have the black

Looking at the two
in a single glass
You can clearly see
which is grasped
And although all search for the light
Most are thrown into the dark

As life goes on
we are thrown about
Between the worlds
of black and white

While one year
you live happy
The next
you live crappy

As life goes on
one can do nothing
to stop the power feud
Between the two extremes
Between Black and White
