Theme: Age

Black & White

A photo - black & white,
Memories come to light,
Fresh faces, innocent eyes,
How fast time flies.

In the mirror - a different man,
Face - wrinkled and wan,
Tired eyes - Full of pain,
Darkened by ashes of dreams in vain.

A world once black and white is gray,
Tainted deep by the lies we say,
Peace of mind is forever lost,
Here "success" is at any cost.

I wish I could return once more,
To that world, Oh! So pure,
A lost soul - Now beyond hope,
For salvation I grope.
