Have you ever had a Shadow?


Have you ever had a shadow
Who would try to imitate what you do
When you speak they speak as well
And they think their words are of truth?
Have you ever had a shadow
That tries to make you feel worst about yourself each day
Who constantly looks you in your face
And makes you realize you two aren’t the same?
Have you ever had a shadow
Who is so mean yet you’re a so nice
The look on their face tells it all
They want you out of sight
Have you ever had a shadow
And you hated it so true
But the only thing stopping you from truly hating them

Is because they are a part of you

Our shadow is a reflection of ourselves
Yet we judge it so unkindly
Why are we so hard on ourselves?
Why do we give up before we try?

Have you ever had a shadow
Who wanted to reach the stars just like you
You think you can’t do it
But to your shadow, that is untrue
