Shadow

Draw a shadow of myself

Outline who I once was

For today is the day

I leave that old life behind

And strike out to be me

 

Trace around the fear and doubt

Circle the inadequacy I feel

I dig deep for inspiration

And pull out all my strength

Time to face my new realities

Do you love me?

Do you even care?

I often doubt my worth

Wonder why we are here

 

Do you need me?

Do you still feel desire?

I feel forgotten

Like I am often unwanted

 

I ask again – Do you love me?

Do I have a place in your heart?

Am I only furnishings

Important only when needed
