Walking down the road

A shadow follows

Silent, dark, mystical

I keep walking, ignoring it,

But I know something is haunting me

The gut feeling deep inside

Screams at me to be aware!

Then a realisation struck

I am following the light in my life

For the first time 

And the shadow is nothing but the past. 

It is meant to be there 

not to haunt me, instead 

be a part of me, of who I am today.

And suddenly I was not afraid anymore

I look back

Embrace the silhouette

And then continue walking forward.

Towards light, always and forever.
