Shadow dancing

By Jennifer Maxwell

A long and winding road












Fight it with anger in your heart

it will consume you

Delicately try to pull it apart

it will confuse you

Choose a side and stand your ground

it will get stronger

Run towards it to catch a glimpse

it will make its steps longer

Ask it questions to clear your mind

it will deny you

Act as if it is not there

it will defy you

Follow guidelines you think are right

it will rule you

Set traps to catch it

it will fool you

Hide away yourself in dismay

it will find you

Love it and hug it

it will come out to play

Sing and dance

it will clear your way

it is you

it is you

You can not go astray
