Mostly Gray

On or Off, Hot or Cold
Day or Night, or so you’re told

Hard to know which way to go
Right or Wrong and Yes or No

Life’s not all extremes, I say
It’s in-between and mostly gray

Absolutes of Black and White
Bookend all the gray in light

Each hue found across that reach
Contains varying amounts of each

Some hues are pale, others quite dark
Doom and gloom, or bright and stark

Some differences subtle, some plain to see
Others swirl in confusion, like cream in tea

Seek to find those shades that dwell
Between extremes of Heaven and Hell

You may understand this all some day
When your hair, like mine, is mostly gray
