do not be afraid of your shadows,
the things you like to hide,
the skeletons in your closet,
that you fold deep inside.
because your secrets do not define you
if they do not corrupt your soul,
for when you bury the darkest parts of you
they have a way of escaping from their hole.
they come gently with the whispers
and haunt you with their words.
you try burying them deeper into earth
but they scream so they’ll be heard.
but you are not alone, my friend,
for all humans do the same.
they stuff their hurting where no one looks
trying to block out pain.
but what if everyone takes their shadows out
when the sun is shining bright,
for maybe shadows all look the same
when they’re held against the light.
hello, dear friends.
I hope you all have had a great week so far!
I spent today at a nearby amusement park with my family.
It was super fun, but now my legs ache from all the walking we did there.
(goodness I need to exercise more. ;))
hope you enjoy this is a little poem I wrote a day or so ago.
I have many more poems, so if you'd like to see more, just let me know. <3
Thank you for stopping by.
