Past Shadows

4 1 0

You sit behind

The shadows of your past

Afraid to step forward

Into the present

Afraid to see

What lies in the light

Of your future

Don't fear for long though

You will be caught

In the web of your past

Never moving forward

To see another day

To never feel

The sun's rays

Beat down on your skin

Or to capture

The glorious beauty

Of the world

With your own eyes

Or even to smell the rain

Of a passing thunderstorm

You are missing out

On everything
