Treasure Island

Cecelia Weir

(March 19,1955 / Fayette, Alabama)

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.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
