Life is a string of pearls; black, white and
       gray of every shade
Each pearl a moment; happy, sad, and every
       emotion in between
Moments in our life shape us; that’s how our
       characters are made
Moments make up our every day; like pixels
       make up our screen
Note each pixel is distinct; each one has its
       own essence and hue
Differences add up; thus a mosaic of pixels
       generate landscapes
The beauty and grandeur of pictures, precludes
       that pixels be all blue
Myriad pigments must the vista be; and pearls
       can have many shapes
Beads make up a string of pearls; billions
       of pixels make a picture
Pearls; black, white and gray; and vibrant
       colors of the rainbow
Life’s not monochromatic; different events
       make life much richer
Happy moments we cherish; but during sad
       times, we await tomorrow!!

How very true every line and emotion. "Moments in our life shape us; that’s how our
characters are made ". Wonderful analyzes. Great work Vic.
