Sun and shadows

It's all about sun and shadows...good times and bad
Waking and sleeping...happy and sad
Black clouds and rain
blue skies and white doves
Peace,love and beauty...fear,hate and mistrust

It's all about sun and shadows...rolling dice and coin flips
Roller coaster rides and terrifying death trips
Slide and slip
The head and the tail
Rising and falling...the sexual spell

It's all about sun and shadows...darkness before the dawn
Living and dying
Prophets and pawns
Sacrifice and subtraction...one peice at a time
Tiny figments and fragments slowly robbing them blind
Kindness of killers and savagery of saints
One time passifists put on angry armor and war paint
Green lights say go...stop signs and red flags

It's all about sun and shadows that make this world just what it is

    It is difficult to trust what we see these days and the world has become a harsher place because of it... A very thought provoking and emotive piece, Anthony. Amazing work!

    Powerful write, Anthony! I've read this at least three times, now I will send it to myself. Paradoxical perplexities of "sun and shadows that make this world just what it is". Blown away by this write, thank you! Best wishes, Mikki :)
