Shadows

by: Kathryn S.

Shadows, shadows everywhere
Reflections of my soul
Indicators of a secret life
Hidden in the depths below.

Waging a war against rape and violence,
I fight to gain control.
Suppressing truth and reality
To the darkness down below.

Masquerading behind rage and anger
The truth begins to rise,
Quickly, quickly it’s pushed back down
And covered up with lies.

Shadows, shadows, everywhere
Reflections of my soul
Run I say, run back to the darkness,
Or a shadow you will throw.

I cannot live this double life.
The past can’t be undone.
So let the truth prevail! Come forward!
The battle’s over. I’ve won.
