Shadows Poem by Lawerence Mize, Sr.


Rating: 4.5

The shadows come
The shadows go
Usually when I'm weak
Or feeling really low

Omens from beyond
Signs to let me know
The time is coming near
When I'll know its time to go

The shadows fade
And float through the air
I hate it when they come
When I sense them being there

I often think they've come
To take me away
Will it be now when I'm alone
Or on some other day

Fear is a bunch of sinister shadows. A shadow has no substance, it's usually a magnified reflection of something small, that's why upon standing boldly before it, one often find it inconsequential. A well articulated piece of poetry nicely penned with lovely rhyme scheme. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

Hello Lawerence, first thanks for your support and review. I loved your poem, well written and so true about those of us who have started going down hill. Thank you for your service, I salute. You might enjoy my poem, An Old Soldier. Great poem, I enjoyed, Loyd
