Out of The Grey 

I remember a world of black and white

When the days were devoid of color

When souls were light sensitive and preferred shades of grey 

I knew there was more than monotone consciousness 

This day by day simulation of encoded life

Society was good at keeping you in the grey

In fact, they were masters of it, keeping things status quo

I remember the masses that had lived that way for so long that they couldn’t conceive there being any other way 

So they stayed

They lived status quo

They lived in the grey

They couldn’t and probably never would understand why we left

There was no guilt, sure there was an air of sadness 

But life is a cocktail of emotions that we drink daily

As we came closer to the other side of the bridge and saw that yellow leaf

“Yellow,” we spoke softly 

He said it would be different, that there were things in this life we would see, really see for the first time

This new sensation of being alive was something we hadn’t experienced before

Not like this

It was almost overwhelming, so much light filling our souls

Completely immersed in light, there was no perceivable existence of grey

Only from time to time I recall when the world was black and white

  1. Amzing! We cannog even imagine ghe power of color as long as we only focus on the grey. But those who look further will see it, walk towards it, and never go back!
