Shadow of Me
by Shouting Mountain
Age Group: Adult
The long night is cold.
My life has been lived in fear of the dark,
For within is a thing that has shamed me.
My body is growing old.
Why does the shadow frighten me so?
There is something familiar in the dark.
It moves like it seems to know me.
Within the shadow is something that I should know.
The shadow is here, cold and lonely,
It surrounds me like a hush and excites me,
With its sad and tender touch.
I finally turn to the shadow with love only.
And at last in the dark I begin to see.
I open my arms wide and,
The embrace at last makes me understand.
The shadow has always been me.
Author's Notes: I wrote this poem after learning to embrace my shadow side. It was the first time in my life that I really started to truly love my whole self.
