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.
