"To thine own self be true."

The world is not black & white.
There are millions of shades and hues in between.
There is the color of joy.
The color of peace.
The color of you and me.
There is a rainbow of love.
A palette of hate.
There's an array of shades symbolic of destruction.
There are infinite shades representative of corruption.
There are unique combinations
Of colors for each nation.
There are one of a kind,
How about the colors of war and Drama?
How about the color of change
Represented in President Obama?
How about the colors of the past
And the colors of where we're going?
The colors of fear, confusion,
And worst,
The color of unknowing.
I prefer the colors of determination.
The colors of happiness, contentment,
But mostly the color of salvation.
So it's true what I say to you in these words written
Black and white,
The world is not
black & white.
But if it were,
I would fall in the gray.
And I hope that YOU would be there beside me.

The author's comments:
I see the world in a spectrum of colors. It is neither here, nor there. We can't be summed up simply because we are not a simple concept.

this is cool. i like the staggered ryhme and how some parts were like WOW. i wuld like all parts to be wow, where as here only some were, which i guess made them all the more special, but they down graded the rest of the writing because they were so much better, and the less-wow parts down-graded the wow parts because they were mixed in. if that makes sense. i love it though, its really cool. :)

Just another casualty.
It's sad but true.
And even dead I'm still ahead
of most of you.

I like this.

I think it could be a little stronger, but it was pretty good over all.
