Walking down the road
A shadow follows
Silent, dark, mystical
I keep walking, ignoring it,
But I know something is haunting me
The gut feeling deep inside
Screams at me to be aware!
Then a realisation struck
I am following the light in my life
For the first time
And the shadow is nothing but the past.
It is meant to be there
not to haunt me, instead
be a part of me, of who I am today.
And suddenly I was not afraid anymore
I look back
Embrace the silhouette
And then continue walking forward.
Towards light, always and forever.
