In The Shadows Poem by Bernard Snyder

In The Shadows

Rating: 5.0


I've been searching for the sunshine
because all of my days have been gloomy,
I'm trying to forget about my past life
because all it does is consume me
I'm constantly burdened by skeletons
overwhelmed by the darkness
I prefer to live in solitude
cause everyone around me seems heartless,
I would like to escape from this misery
and never look back at this
but I'm so overcome by the shadows
I've grown accustom to unhappiness!

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

An insightful depiction of deplorable life at its lowest ebb elegantly written with conviction. Depression is a shadow without substance but yet devastates lives whenever it rears its ugly head. Thanks for sharing Bernard. Please read my poem COLOSSAL MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE.
