POEM: A SHADOW

Shadows are the silent trackers

They do not speak but walk behind you

If you travel in the light

Your shadow will surely find you

No matter where you go

Moving fast or moving slow

It will be there on the ground

Or on a wall

Standing around

Stretching in the sun

To ripple when you run

It cannot see, it does not hear

It never smiles, knows no fear

But it is there and it is you

Mimicking everything you do

But when all goes dark

You are alone

Without your shadow

You’re on your own.

 

But has your shadow gone away

Or is it waiting for another day?
