A World Of Gray

The dull sun glares upon our society
On this meaningless morning of today

Reflecting each others hypocrisy
Transfixed on each others gaze

Think-headed and relaxed
Nonchalant and vexed

Practicing the art of being ungrateful
Portraying the act of an imbecile
-
Some say that it's just life's cycle
As they lie through convincing smiles

Feeding false information
Teaching faults from past generations

There's all different kinds of people
Who carry around different kinds of evil


My skin turns to stone! / My blood turns to ash!
My heart I disowned! / My sins drown in a mass!

My organs turn to dust! / My sight becomes colorless!
My thoughts start to rust! / My cruelty becomes careless!


I don't know where we went wrong
The future's history can't be undone

Though it can be prevented
Spare the guilt of countless resentments

We have to decide on the decent choice
And watch the noise that comes form our voice
-
The dim moon smiles upon our possibilities
On this potential ominous night

Morally judging from our lack of diversity
I hope the chances for change are right

Because this has turned into a world
That I don't want to live in anymore

I don't want to endure another typical day
For I have become so sick of the sight of gray
As the world fades away
All I can see is this disgusting color of gray

Heh well that's kind of cool. I had to change my title. This is a revision, the first version was called "A Shade Of Gray" And it was titled that years before that stupid 50 shades of gray became a meme. So when I found out what that book was about, I was like "Shit....I need to change the title now....or else I'll look like a fool x.x"

It follows the same concept and it has some of the same stanzas in it, it just has a new title mostly.

This sees beyond the gray. Remember him Roy G. Biv he gives us color, but the possibilities of color? Limitless. So some *self* included, are blind to the color of every day life. All we see is the gray, the tired, the weakness in our soul. my soul... I speak for all, no one, but my true voice is in my own. Love this piece.

i read your journal and saw how you're trying to survive without God in your life. I wish you well, but you've got a rough road ahead of you, my friend. if you haven't already, read my latest journal along with my journal series "In support of belief. let me know what you think.

I don't think he needs another illusion in his life. There are enough already imbedded in our brain. At least he sees the world as it is. If you trow away every delusion that the society has implanted in you, you will see that the humanity is really gray and moving toward the edge of the cliff that hangs above the abyss of our ignorance, and while the humanity is circulating down the drain, you and others, how live with the same ideology, will just "believe" while being washed down, with other dust particles in the undeniable and immutable end.

Looking for an afterlife and trying to neglect death's real definition is what i call dull-wittedness. In a world swallowed by darkness, it is your decision how to move on with life. Because of the short lifespan that has been given us, we should try to make the best out of it. God and religion, especially religion, shouldn't be there to make our choices and "direct us in to the right way". You should throw away that burden and be free.
