Casted Shadows - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

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

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is about people who talk about and pull other people down,
they have no life of their own so they try to ruin other peoples,
we all know someone like this. They have been casting their shadows
since time began.

    I understand your shadow comment very well.... we have to live with them.When i was a kid, there was a song with the line 'flickering shadows come and go.' (Report) Reply

    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
