Shadows of My Past


The Shadows of my past
are like scars upon my soul,
lightened with age
although the memories are buried deep.
The trials and tribulations
which have shaped my life,
have been a mixture of feelings and hope,
emotions and tears, lessons and sins.
Is it any wonder I’m able to go on?
Clawing my way up from the inside out,
testing and trying to find the right way,
hoping the shadow of memories
won’t cut me too sharply.

Thank you for sharing your thought.
