Shades

The priests, the saints,
The sinners, the lovers
They all paint
This world in different colours

Each time a different shade from palette
A shade of regret
A shade of sorrow
A shade thereby, for a better morrow

Pick a shade of reality
Splash it on incredulity
Choose now a shade of wisdom
Paint it! And paint thy freedom

Add a darker shade of beauty
Paint a different shade of ugly
Add a tender shade of hate
And love for a bittersweet taste

Hear me out now and remember well little lads!
Life is all but a fading fad
We live by wearing shades of good and bad
Everyone’s a different shade of sane or mad
A different shade of happy, a different shade of sad.
