Shadows Everywhere
There are Shadows everywhere
Some are visible
Some are less obvious
While others appear to be non-existent
Yet, they are there,
lingering
Whether or not,
you realize it.
Whether or not,
you know it.
Whether or not,
you feel it.

There are Shadows everywhere
Some are within you
Some are visible
Some are less obvious
While others appear to be non-existent
Yet, they are there,
lingering
Whether or not,
you realize it.
Whether or not,
you know it.
Whether or not,
you feel it.

The Shadows in your head
they can play games with you
They can help you improve
or they can destroy you.
Silently
Quietly
Waiting for the right time
Waiting for the right opportunity

There are Shadows everywhere
Most hide in the dark
Waiting patiently
Watching you
Whether or not,
you realize it.
Whether or not,
you know it.
Whether or not,
you feel it.

My Shadow introduced itself
My Shadow showed up unexpectedly
My Shadow showed no mercy
It was merely a split second
I couldn't see it
I merely felt it
Overcome by fear
Overcome by panic
Overcome by stress
Overcome by anxiety
I began to hyperventilate
I began to fear something unknown,
something dark,
something unthinkable,
something intangible.

There are Shadows everywhere
The ones that blindside you
are the ones to fear
My Shadow introduced itself last night
It was merely a split second
Yet, enough to know
I never want it to return
I don't want to feel it
I don't want to see it
I don't want it

There are Shadows everywhere
Some are visible
Some are less obvious,
while others appear to be non-existent
Yet, they are there.
Have you met yours?
