Black and White

FullSizeRender 75.jpg

I saw the world in black and white
And everything seemed clear
Assured of what was right and wrong
Of all that was loved and dear.

But as I grew, the grey seeped in
And with it my uncertainty.
I saw that decisions made
Were not fuelled by perversity.

Life is much too complicated
To always get things right.
You can’t judge someone’s choices
Unless you truly know their plight.

To utterly understand decisions
To see the world’s vast views
You have to do the impossible:
You’d have to walk in their shoes.
