Standing in the Shade




Quietly progressing all of my days

Setbacks happen but they are but bumps in the road

Perceptions cast upon you, you have to live with and overcome

Perceptions are just opinions cast by uninformed people

Used to undermine your progress

So for once get out to the sunshine, because the shade hides the best of you

A Slight Shade of Blue



By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.



Reveling in their true nature

A history of sadness

Embodied by emotions to strong to physically comprehend

But you try

Failing and failing again

But failing isn’t the end; it is but a buildup of half successes

Oh these weary blues

Emotions from which songs derive

Coursing through the soul

The only way to truly understand

Those days when the world has tilted to the negative

Inside the bad good always arises

To reclaim our spirits

But we’ll always have that slight shade of blue

So as to appreciate when the sun shines upon our face

As I stand upon this hillside point

Looking out over streams, trees and grass

I feel rejuvenated

Able to tackle the life down below

As I stand above it all

The sun shines down upon my face


Embracing me with natural love

A few clouds form off to the west

Despair lingers

The cold winds whip through the country side

Oh how I wish

I could take the rays of sun

And offer warmth and happiness

To those oh so cloudy skies
