Shades of Grey
Age Group: Adult
black and white.
such stark contrast.
it eliminates blind spots in ones' behaviour.
it allows us to handle day to day affairs.
it makes decisions less stressful.
And eases our peace of mind.
yet...what is this?
Shades of gray.
Freedom of speech.
Freedom to do as you please.
I know this to be true.
I am a man of convictions.
My code of honor knows little of lattitude.
My thoughts are on the here and now. Not into the future.
or lamenting my past.
I dwell on what is right and just.
what is honorable and true.
I stave off adversity, callousness, hatred, fear, anger.
I right wrongdoings.
And defend my code with my life.
I am a man, with honor, looking to the horizon.
There is nothing further for me here.
Liberty has succeeded over justice.
My era has ended.
so be it.
