Shades Of Gray

Elusive tides of life adrift;
  trivial concerns of a bygone day;
  sullen moods oft termed 'blue'
  leads the soul to laggard decay;
Overcast all in shades of gray.

Consider not such clouded times;
  detest the spectrum of crystal sky;
  translucent voids cannot redeem
  recollected dreams strewn awry:
Gray shadows craftily supply.

Unchained ocean crests upon the storm;
  dissipates hapless ships hurled astray;
  seasoned sailors know no reprieve
  reflective images startling portray:
Each past, each memory, in shades of gray.
