In the shadows

Hides the past

The things I thought I left behind

The people who impacted me

 

In the shadows

Hides my clear sight

The soft hue is fuzzy and grey

The confusion sets in

 

In the shadows

Hides my fears

The burden I no longer want to carry

But the shadows flicker with reminders

 

In the shadows

Hides my pain

A reminder of tragedy gone by

Threatening to show themselves in the light

 

In the shadows

I remind myself it isn't real

They are fading, fleeting

They aren't part of my future

 

In the shadows

Is no longer where I live

They may live there

But they get weaker every day

 

In the shadows

Is where they will stay

They no longer haunt me

Because I choose the light
