As you please

Compose a verse that is worse than a boil

Compose a poem that'll show 'em in  oils.

Compose a eulogy that reaches the stars

Compose a symphony an epithany of ours

Compose the day as an aspect of night

Compose your mood as a monochrome in plain sight

Fit your work to an existing pattern

Or learn to flatten out the peaks and troughs.

Confront the imposters' honour and worth

Nobody's born equal, life can be rough,

Filter the airways and believe what you will.

Simply believing can lighten the load

Be sceptical of those that promise much

Love those who are alone in crowds

And never fear death or disaster

But fill your days with poetry and laughter.

I love that your poem blends perfectly with the accompanying picture.
I am a great fan of monochrome having being brought in a monochrome world, when the only colour we had as a kid was at the cinema and some early bad colour photography.
A marvellous portrayal from the opening lines of repeated wording right through to the end.
