The Shadow Run Poem by Cecelia Weir


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.
