Live Life Like A Party That Never Ends

I am white
Pure and innocent
Thoughtful and naive
Like a newborn lamb

I am black
Strong and proud
Outcasted and unique
Like a black sheep

This isn’t black and white
Clear cut and to the point
Life is a variation of colors
Shaded and blended together

I am mixed
Located in the middle
Of the shading scale
Not two toned, but one whole

I am gray

Real life isn't black and white like pages in a book. Read between the lines, blur the colors; Gray.

beautiful comparison, life is blurry, so many choices... gray. I love it! the ending is perfect, and it flows gracefully, even though it doesn't rhyme. This is a great poem- I don't really have anything bad to say about it, totally five stars!

What the front door.

I do love the transition and uncertainty- I'm this, no I'm this, no....I'm actually this.
