Shadow

dark darkness loneliness mystery

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
