The Shadow Behind Me. - Poem by richy kar

I see the shadow flickring behind me,
as It passes through the dark peaky road,
surrendering itself to the darkness of the sky.

i see it moving abruptly in the full fledged road of darkness,
with mind so disturbed and confused,
unable to reconcile with the narrow endings of the night.

but what can it do to pass away,
from shadow of darkness, the shadow of death
to embalm the light of life.

but to condole, be enamoured with, is its way
espousing the essence of life,
to full blown sunrise.

    Shadows made of an object
    May never loose its properties.
    But shadows made of mind
    Never has any identity itself
    Than what you figure it out.

    Be watchful of your mind in creating those shadows.
    Its better to be cautious of those shadows
    Never be afraid of those.
    All the best.
