Ode To Black And White

Poem By Jaypee Belarmino

I am not of any color
except of black and white.
I cannot be called
blue, or red
or yellow or green,
for I only reside the in the extremes
of darkness
and of light.
I am neither opal,
nor topaz, nor
the early dawn
or the pale midnight.
I am only to become
the night in its blackness
or the day at its brightest.

I am neither grey
nor the rainbow,
I shall never be at the center
nor in the prism of light.
I shall only be called the Yin
or the Yang,
for I am only
the black and the white.
