Walk Not In the Shadows


Choose not to walk
Beneath the shadows of your own character
Nor lie hostage to a broken dream.
But choose to lean forward
Into your future destiny
And make an imprint
That will over shadow and impress
The shadows that once followed low self esteem.

    I find myself underneath these said shadows...I hope to one day rise and overcome. One day.

    True words, indeed. Know that they do not fall on deaf ears. (Report) Reply
