Truth be told,
my life has more shades of color than I can see.
Brightness engulfs me and everything around me.
Saying that the dark shades don’t take over me would be a lie.
But when I see that light taking over the darkness,
I realize, I need the night to appreciate this light.
Everything it touches, it makes it shine;
it’s as alluring as gold and as simple as barley.
The slightest hint of those rays,
what’s the world without its sheen?
It’s a new hope; a new day; a new time to enjoy.
The palette is settled, the colors all come together
and it shines on me;
it has so many dimensions to it;
bright because these shades aren’t just black and white;
they ride together to make these rays worth every dime.
