Shadows are dark 

So it's easy to hide

Because it is so afraid 

Of showing itself on the outside 


Shadows could be around people 

Shadows could be found behind anything 

Found behind boxes

To common things


Shadows are not internal

It does not have a face 

No arms to fold 

Nor arms to embrace 


Shadows are unknown 

People do not care to see

Shadows re not important 

So that's what some of you think


Shadows can not speak 

That something that's always follows you

Through the darkest days

It will never go away


You will never catch a shadow

Because they come and go 

Even when it's so close

No one will never know



Need to talk?
