Lights and shadows

by Sirisha Kambam
(Andhra Pradesh)








Lights and Shadows
Fiery and bright
Dark and cold
All over the world

Lights and Shadows
A play of hearts
Through many windows
People of all sorts

Lights and Shadows
So many shades of gray
Turmoil and joy
All reflecting in the day

Lights and Shadows
Some lurking invisible
Some parading in the open
All present all watching

Lights and Shadows
Illuminating through the years
Sparkling over many tears
Revealing all the dark fears

Lights and Shadows
Playing games, hiding truth
Burning minds, hiding lies
Struggling to take every breath

Lights and Shadows
Good and bad
Not so different
Yet so far off

Lights and Shadows
Glowing minds
Guardian angels
Singing and soothing

Lights and Shadows
Pale dark souls
Old bad ghouls
Writhing and whining

Lights and Shadows
Not one without another
Both useless with neither
Together forever

Lights and Shadows
In a deadly embrace twined
Each the others spine
The one that wins is the one you choose.
