Walking in The Shadows

My eyes do not conceal

What’s hidden deep inside

And if my tears could talk

Oh, the stories they would confide


Cause all I ever think about

Are the memories of my past

Years of trauma have been my guide

This depression’s here to last


To others, I am a broken soul

To be forgotten and left aside

So, loneliness becomes another burden

I must carry with me and try to hide


Though in shadow’s I forever walk

With footsteps heavy as they be

To take it one moment at a time

This, is my solemn plea

First and foremost, I am a mother. I am a Freelance Writer, Blogger, and Poet at heart. One of my biggest goals in life is to Aspire to Inspire others I cross paths with. I live in Battle Creek, MI where a smiling face is not hard to come across in the street. I believe living with integrity is key to not having regrets. Just a moment of your time and a kind word or two can change someone else's day. I love spending time with my daughter, son, daughter-in-law and our awesome K-9 companions, Gir & Silas.
