My Black or White World

Updated on March 3, 2011

its black or white
its all or none
no battle here
can be half won...


its up or down
its in or out...
no need to ask,
no room for doubt


its on or off
its high or low
no in-betweens,
just come or go!


its live or die,
yes sink or swim...
its decision time
not hapless whim...


God is or isn't
There's no debate...
its heaven or hell
and they do not equate!

its north or south
its day or night
take a stand
for wrong or right


its black or white
its all or none
no battle here
can be half won...

      bbnix, your comment made me smile...I have spent too much time on the fence...no more time for that! I must say, though, this probably requires an addendum, for reality is many times some shade of gray...

      attemptedhumour, your comment just thrilled me! I came very close to un-publishing this piece, for, as I said to bbnix, there is much in reality that is some variation of gray...I do tend to be more of a black or white thinker...which makes gray a bit of a challenge to wrap my mind around...lol! Thanks for your visit and most excellent comment!

      Oh we all know about gray, but hey, there comes a time when things have to be Black and White...

      i liked it. but i believe the world isnt all black and white, theres a lot of color in it, and not everything has to be wrong or right, its matter of opinion.

      Howdy No_Clue - Yes indeed. Some of us believe that you should take up writing poems. :)

      Raises her glass to bbnix! Cheers!!!

      Nikki, I so agree with you...This poem was a bit of a ha ha on me...for I tend to view things in black or white, even when they are rainbow or grey...

      Great work, I wander around in my gray tones and like it like that. I spent too many of my younger years in black and white and just don't have the energy for it anymore so I'll just sit here on the fence :-D Peace!! Tom

      Life is full of ups and downs, black and whites, yet there is still room for gray areas and these are what create wars, political and religious controversy and argument. If everything on this planet was Black/White we would be living in Utopia:0) Great poem/great rhyme with lots of black and white tossed in. You got my full attention, bravo.

      saddlerider, hmmmm...Utopia would be My Dream World! LOLOLOL...crackin myself up here! My goal in life is moderation in all things...there is a place for black and white and a place for shades of gray and color...I am searching for the balance, while swinging from the pendulum!!! but...as I write...ideas begin to crystallize...then at least I have some idea of where to wander! lol...by the time I reach Heaven's Gate, I will be thoroughly confused!!! lol the journey IS fun though, specially with you in it! Hugs!

      Sunnie Day, thank you, kindly...It was a light hearted haha on my struggle to think in shades of gray when most of life is neither white or black but some variable therein! Take care!

      Love it! Actually, I agree with you, sometimes it is precisely black or white. Decisions, decisions. Just not to be lost in between =)

      Thanks again, Max! Alas, there is a vast ocean of gray out there in the universe...and things are rarely black or white, in reality!
