If it were only as simple as black and white…!
Right or wrong, truth or lies
and no minefield wasteland in between.
If it were only a case of taking sides…!
Yours or mine, no or yes
and no dithering on possibilities in between.
If it were only…!
But who would set the standards?
Decide what is right or wrong.
Whose moral standpoint should we use
as our own rule of thumb?
So if it were only as simple as black and white..!
It really cannot be
at least not for those of us
who want to keep being free…
This was written a while back in response to a prompt on One Single Impression, but never got posted… It is, however, one of those philosophical ideas I bat around with myself, and thought I’d post it anyway. Also trying to get back to not putting images with every post, even though it feels very weird! *smile*
