Sometimes I sit down to think
And imagine a world without feeling.
At first I think that it will be black and white.
There would be no hate, nor resentment,
Racism, nor oppression.
There would be no war, and pain
Created from the evils of greed and ambition.
However as I sit down and think,
Think about what this truly means,
I come to realize that this world
Would be not one in black and white,
But in a neutral shade of grey.
There would be no hate,
But neither would there be love,
And deaths final breath would be
But a meaningless sound.
A world without emotion would
Contain no life, because without pain
Life does not have the will to live.
The world would be filled with nothing,
Nothing but darkness, and no death.
There would be nothing at all,
And such a world could not exist,
A world made of neutral grey
Is not a world, but a dark abyss.
