My Shadow With Me
By: Kevin Norbert G. Lopez
I wander the path I’ve chosen
Whilst alone in the dark I travel.
Living a life beholden
As I journey, mysteries unravel.
I walk alone in the darkest hour
Hoping to meet even the cruelest umpire
In the woods in which I scour
For the comfort I most desire.
Daylight comes and I awoke from my slumber.
Observing my surroundings as I got dazzled by the sunlight.
The solitary moments tear my heart asunder,
Another day spent with a life like blight.
Lonely in the woods so deep, only to see
I only have my shadow with me.
