THE SHADOW

WALKING DOWN THE LANE OF LIFE,

I TOOK A PATH IN UNKNOWN STRIDE.

NO EXPECTATIONS, NO DREAMS,

AND NO OTHER SHADOW BY MY SIDE.

EXPLORING WITH QUIET APPREHENSION,

EXPERIMENTING WIH DILIGENT CARE,

WALKING, STUMBLING WHEN I LOOKED BACK

MY PATH; ANOTHER SHADOW ASKED ME TO SHARE!

TOGEHER WE TRIPPED,

TOGETHER WE FELL,

TOGETHER WE THREW OURSELVES IN THE AIR.

TOGETHER WE HUMMED,

TOGETHER WE SANG,

TOGETHER WE BATTLED EVERY DARE.

IT WAS A FACE UNTOUCHED, A SIDE UNDISCOVERED,

FOR ME, IT WAS A GENIAL DELIGHT,

CARRYING EMOTIONS IN SECRET DISGUISE,

THE SHADOW GAVE ME REALITY’S INSIGHT.

BUT NOW I CAN SEE THE END OF THE PATH,

EXPECTATIONS CLOUDING MY VISION

DREAMS CLUSTERING MY MIND

AND THE OTHER SHADOW BUCKLING UP FOR NEW MISSION.

I HAVE TO RETURN TO MY ORIGINAL LANE,

BUT THERE IS NO EASE IN LEAVING THIS TRACK.

I STRUGGLE, I CLAMBER AND I LOOK BEHIND

I FIND A STRAND HOLDING ME BACK.

I PAUSE, I PONDER AND FOLLOW THE INFRANGIBLE STRAND,

CURIOUS TO KNOW TO WHAT IT LEADS.

FINALLY IT ENDED BEHIND A BEAUTIFUL TREE,

CLINGING TO THE SHADOW I WANTED TO SEE!
