Casted Shadows

A casted shadow
falls upon your shoulders
a part of life
that can't be divided

It's like
a crucifixion of Christ
nailed through the hands

It will stay for eternity
unless you stand up and fight
don't let the shadows
run your life

    There are many of them, and seem to experience a perverse kind of pleasure out of bringing other people down. They are suffering from an inferiority complex. Well written. (Report) Reply
