The Shadow Run


Don't let the shadow run your life
The one you left behind.
Remember you are the one out front
You can change the shadow from within the mind.

A man that runs from his own shadow
And accuses it of being someone else
Has not accepted the depth of who he is
And realize the shadow is only himself.

To clear the shadows of the past
Is never to live them again
And although the shadow still follows close
It knows it will never win.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
