We can't escape, the shadows in our lives.


Constantly all around,
Some stark, some subtle.
Forms upon the ground.

Shadows are ever present.
Persistent never vanished.
Darkness they too accent.

Lurking for you to view,
Images imagined or real.
Depends how you construe.

Before your eyes rearranging,
Like the only constant in life.
Continually always changing.

Never leaving by yourself,
Beside, in front, or behind.
Traveling with you like an elf.

Matching stride for stride,
No matter what your pace.
Sometimes being a guide.

Happy things in them to see,
Scary things time to time.
Making us smile or flee.

We can't escape, the shadows in our lives.
Sometimes light, sometimes dark.
Some we even despise.
