Shadows on daachiever

SHADOW

Far above all things held dear,
I find you ever near,
Constantly you are with me,
Ever beside me.

All may leave and never look back,
You are always there even when I look back,
All of my qualities you imbibed,
My other half even in the dark.

You always told the truth to me,
Showing me who I really was,
Not what others want me to be,
You show the real me.

I feared you in the dark,
Trying to run away from you as fast as I can,
But you keep catching up to me,
Only because you are ‘me’.

Even when in the day,
I kept my emotions so sealed away,
In the darkest of night,
You show the ‘me’ I couldn’t hide.

You are a silent companion,
The best confidant, though you can’t speak,
You speak a lot about me through the dark
You are nothing else but a part of me in the dark…

Writer Conclusion:  I remember growing up, as a young kid, I aimlessly felt scared when I see my shadow in the night, seeing another you taller than you was a scary thought, I would try to run away but this image keeps following me and overshadows me. As I grew up, I began to understand better; I studied my shadow in the night and I saw it was another reflection of who we are in the dark when the mirror couldn’t work best. It was a good secret keeper and a silent companion. As we grow up we learn things, have learned from my shadow. The poem might be a little blend but would so much appreciate comments. Thanks
