Shadow
kripto

the darkness follows,
 1
as I pick up pace
 2
It keeps it
 3
always behind
 4
 
 
I see no hope
 5
for as I turn, it creeps closer
 6
and closer, until the lights go out
 7
and now i am immersed in a world
 8
with nothing
 9
 
 
my eyes cant process what is  
 10
in the absence of light
 11
But now I see the darkness that once stalked me like prey
 12
The blanket of fear and hesitation has lifted
 13
and what is left is simply unknown
 14
 
 
However the feeling of longing has caused a decay
 15
in the way, I see, for I can not
 16
Two claps and all is back, where it was
 17
And now i know a truth
 18
that once avoided me
 19
 
 
Life is not a path to stroll down
 20
nor one to run through
 21
but instead you must make your own
 22
and as you pave the road
 23
the lights may go, but you shall remain
 24
