The shadow that’s’ besides me,

Is the darkest me of doubt,

Excepting that it follows me,

Knowing there’s no way out,

The light that brings the image,

A dark sheltered side of my form,

I glance upon it so briefly,

Till fear sends me rushing home,

If I could live in darkness,

Then no shadow would I cast,

But I know that I detest,

As I know that from my past,

I cannot live without the sun,

This cannot then ever become,

My shadow I’ll just let be,

So long as it bothers not me.
