It's Not Me But....

It's not me but my shadow.
Once has been in me,
The shadow behind-
Now, I don't want to be,
Before it, to follow-
My every step always,
My poems of my heart,
My diary's every page!
I gave all my burdens,
To the light-made self,
She will care me with
Shield, stretching her help.
I'm shadowed, I'm free,
I forgot my former form.
Whatever, they think me,
I'll stay in my shadow's arm.

    In the day the shadow comes from the sun
    In the night it comes from within
    by day we see all the shadow has done
    In a flame which side does one find the shadow in (Report) Reply
