Life is never simple,
for the world is not all black and white.
There's no solid definition
of what is wrong and what is right.
Some say it's just opinion,
while others claim it's point of view.
It's even been said that we made it all up!
Are any of these true?
They're all feeble attempts to explain
all the shades of gray
that force us to chose; one side or the other
each and every day.
It leaves it all up to us
to decide which way is best.
Whether it be opinion, perspective, or illusion,
it's meant to put us to the test.
Life won't do it for us,
it's WE who have to figure out
how to separate all the "in the middle",
so there's never any doubt.
But we haven't yet, so it's up to us
to decide from wrong and right.
And what an overwhelming task that is,
for the world's not all black and white.
