In various hues of grey
The world to which I belonged
Had night blurring into day,
And the day morphing into night
With indistinct borders all around
No sharp distinction of black and white
Innumerable shades of grey I had found
The lack of distinct hues, the blurriness
Fuelled my fertile imagination
But taking decisions was like a wild guess
The shades of grey clouded my estimations..
Then I met him, who idolized
The world of black and white
Life for him was compartmentalized
Things were either wrong or right
As we united in spirit and soul
The greys merged with the monochromes
The spectrum of white and black became whole,
We welcomed it in our hearts and home.
I showed him the romance of blurry greys
He showed me the science of black and white
And so passed our collective days
With different perceptions, but functioning right!
