"When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes.
But when you photograph people in Black and White, you photograph their souls!" ~ Ted Grant
For those who perceive life in black and white
Fabricating the surface of every situation at the speed of light
Despite the lack of knowledge of what’s seen, unseen, heard, or unheard
To a certain height, they might sit and write just to cause a fright
Even more colourful than the colours of google chrome
Life is beyond the monochrome
Things are not quite so simple as black and white
For as bright as the daylight may seem, life cannot be reduced to gross generalisation
A nation where one allows one’s opinion to become their foundation
I plead you that do not allow minimal conversation to demolish your station.
For I tell you seeing things as they seem may distort your thinking
For seeing things as they are, removes you from seeing the layers of intricacies and complexities of life.
For there is far more to life than just the monochrome
There’s so much grey to every situation, nothing is discretely black and white
In an extenuating circumstance where nothing is definite
The picture in our heads of the only way to live might not be of benefit
To my own discretion, everything is a matter of degree in its ambiguity
That if we limit ourselves and see things in monochrome,
we loose the plot of the power in great ingenuity
To be opened and not to be narrow minded
To be open to new ideas and concepts
To accept that there’s life beyond the monochrome
