Dark Side of Life

This entire poem was made out of the lyrics on the album by Pink Floyd. Depicted above is a photo representation of the metaphor presented throughout the album, and on the album cover itself. The cover of the album displays a prism with light coming in to form a rainbow, but the underlying meaning in much more complex. Sanity is considered lucidity, insanity is considered to be lunacy, and the moon, in Spanish, is called luna. A person presumed to be crazy is called a lunatic. Therefore, the cover represents the dark (lunacy) and the bright (lucidity) sides of life.   The photo is a take on the cover with the rainbow, and utilization of the yin yang as a prism, but the overall meaning is of lucidity and lunacy.
