Shades of Gray

Shades of gray like smoke
Invade my life
A faith that demands black and white
Tolerates no gray
A child that needs love consistently
Tolerates no depression
A bank account that is fragile
Tolerates no mania
A heart that is broken 
Tolerates no guilt or anxiety
I know black and white, but
Gray is all I can do.
