Monochrome short poem

Uploaded by Jyoti_Joseph

Since the very first day of my life,
I was taught only two words.
all my actions and speech,
could either calm a person or prick like sword.

I was nurtured in a way,
that all of it was either right or wrong.
my deeds and actions,
were either reprimanded or praised like a song.

world was very simple for me,
good as an angel or like devil’s bad.
only two emotions were practiced far and wide,
cheerful, happy, depressed or sad.

my horizons became limited,
and choices were a few.
I never enjoyed the setting sun,
or played in morning dew.

today when I look at me in the mirror,
I see only two tones.
black and white is all I see,
making me a perfect monochrome.

About the book: These poems happened to me at random, insignificant moments. They are still damp, from loss. They manifest wild ways to look at ordinary things. I am picking up pieces of life And handing them over to you.


Monochrome long poem

Black is the epitome for darkness, An all thinks desolate and bleak. Purple gives us the incentive- the hope what we seek. Pastel yellow is the sun Which glistens our day, While blue is the color Of the scintillating bay
