To live in between

Girl, Unafraid – Neil Bernhart

I grew up with fairytales. But have always believed that life was either black or white.

Its either yes or no.

Now. Or never.

Love. Or hate.

Life was safe with absolutes. I knew what was happening. I was in control. I knew what I had to do.

But as I grew up, I learned that life had a new color to it - the uncertain twist of grey.

The maybes and the could have beens.

The sometimes and laters and regrets.

And the taste of bittersweet love.

Grey is neither here nor there. It was a mixture of both black, and white. Never either, stuck in between, lost.
