My Shadow with Me

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.
