Lost Shadows - Poem by Monica Engeler
They say when I was a child,
I was crazy and wild.
Playing baseball and basketball
was nothing at all.
They say I loved to run ever free
like the wind and the sea.
Seeing lions and a tiger was nil,
but a baby crying made me ill.
I don’t remember being content
Life was just too dominant
Parents controlled life and order
there was never any disorder.
My pride appeared only downward
there was no freedom going forward.
Dark days rolled only in the moment
to meet destiny was not meant.
I want to live fierce and sizable
my litter years erased from credible
No tears for any painful fears
Shadows lost forever with cheers.
A call echoes the future to paradise
I pray the time will be wise
Remember the past as a passage
with words of a strong message.
They say I have learned many things
those lessons will ever sing
I am no longer a stranger alone
Life and I travel on my own.
