Shades of Gray
Well,some things are definitely worth fighting for--sure
But, come on, no need to fight about *everything* !
How much sweeter would this world be if we could be a little more accepting of each other and try to see the nuances of our disagreements? Especially all you cock-sure a**holes out there!

SHADES OF GRAY
© Mark Greenberg July 21, 2019
I heard someone say “Are you ready for a fight?
It’s the only way to settle what’s wrong and what’s right”
I said “Hold on partner, don’t get so tight
There’s a whole lot in the middle between black and white”
Between love and hate, saints and sinners
Lies and truth, losers and winners
Come on, show a little mercy, this ain’t the judgement day
Sometimes it comes down, to just a case of shades of gray
Shades of gray, what could be duller?
But next to black or white, it’s like technicolor
Open your mind, there’s a rainbow on the way
Let’s take the first step and work on just the shades of gray
Save your rants, forget your quibbles
We might be surprised if we met in the middle
Is it is or is it not?
Somewhere is the middle is a very sweet spot
Shades of gray, shades of gray
It takes light and dark to make one day
It’s not as stark as black or white
Can’t we say, it’s just a case of shades of gray.
