Black or White? (As Simple As...)


I've already told you

"I don't know..."

And if you would've asked me again

I still wouldn't have known

such a simple question

as Black and White as could be

And what have I?

But to say "Black"

Or "White".


I can't settle for either

Black is where I've always been

And White is where I want to be

But not the shade it's in at the moment

What shade indeed do I really want?

I don't know...

Will I ever find it then?

Not in this lifetime

Mayhaps.



Black is where I belong

White is where you want me to

Sometimes I am so crazed

So blinded by the purity of it all

Sometimes I am disgusted

By the pale shadows

The sheer white that isn't so

Can I live my life

Forever choosing and embracing

Either and neither

Or do I wait for a dream

That may one day yet come true

Because

In my dreams

I don't see colours at all
