Shadows

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
