SHADES OF GRAY by Maveriqué Richard at



written by: Maveriqué Richard



There are two sides to a coin;
And many different shades of gray,
Colors blend from various rays;
To give rainbows in a deep blue sky.

There is a fox in every man;
A shadowing demon,
And a Mona Lisa,
A tender heart and the devil’s loin;
Strong emotions paired in despair.

Mortal men are like a nerveless thorn;
Running freely on a glowing rose,
A steep ocean of inestimable depth;
And a lowland of mountains and hills.

He’s Kindness with a stint of pain,
Sweetness and tinctures of sour,
An Island of boundless contours;
Depending on which Ox is gored.
