Living With The Shadows Of The Past

A distorted, blackened
Reflection of you
Following you everywhere
Without cringing…

A manifestation of all that you are
A replica of your inner self
And everything you don’t want
The world to see…

A sun-kissed reflection of you,
At sundown when  the world
Becomes a silhouette
Defining the contours of space…

As I stand back in the crowd
I see some real people with smiling faces
Living with the shadows of past
Struggling. Coping. Surviving.
