The Shadow You Cast Poem by Jim McGill

The Shadow You Cast

Rating: 5.0

Consider the shadow you cast upon others
Be they partners or parents, sisters or brothers
Sons or daughters. They must have their druthers
To basque daily in the sun and let talents show
Leave gaps that lace throughout your shadow
So that light comes through to set them aglow
For if you truly love those who are near you
You will give them space for growth to ensue

So true, Jim. We must give them space. And our shadow is always cast over them, for good or for bad.

So many of us are guilty of not giving our loved ones enough space to grow. Your inference is so very well expressed in this poem, Jim.
