"allons-y!" - All the Shades of Grey

All the Shades of Grey

when you were little,
everything was
black
and
white—
like the photographs that remain.

it was superheroes or mad villains,
war or peace.
smiles or frowns.

no greyscale
in between—
not allowing for the smirk,
the truce,
the “lying-so-you-won’t-hurt”.

everything is now captured in colour,
and you can clearly see the shadows:
the thieves who saved a life,
a bodyguard killing his employer,

and it scares you.
