Forty-four Shades of Red

header_bg(Lest we forget!)

Grey has fifty,
Red has forty-four.

It’s neither black nor white,
But not grey also.
The choice’s not clear –
Good or evil?

It’s neither black nor white –
Not grey.
It’s red,
It’s blood!
The choice is clear,
Heed the marching orders!
No shades of grey,
It’s red.
Forty-four shades of death.



Teacher-Writer-Lifelong Learner I have three passions - teaching, writing, and learning. I am a Filipino currently residing and teaching in South Korea. I blog and vlog the things I write. I have two websites and two YouTube channels where I publish my works in my areas of interest. I also use Wattpad and Pinterest to publish my creative works. I am into research as well. Some of my articles were presented at conferences and published in indexed-journals. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
