Shadowy Memories

My past is a shadow,
It goes wherever I go
And when I die,
My shadow will dance
In the light of the world no more.
I've been very busy with my studies in college and
many other events within my life at the moment, so hopefully
I'll have more to share with you all in regards to what I have been writing.

Poetry mostly (the none rhyming kind) and some that does rhyme. I'm working on a few short stories too.
I have been researching philosophy as my journal has remained stating since September of this year (2012) and writing many philosophical thoughts, that I plan to share once they have retained a high polished shine.

I hope you like it.
Thank you for the views, faves, and comments.:heart:

Some of the best things are simple. That's what I love about this poem. It's short and to the point, and just magnificent. I like to read it over and over again and let it sink in. It's so elegant and wonderfully worded.

nice poem, sad thought- is there really no escape from our past? i think not.. forgiveness and acceptance will light your spirit and you'll be able to fearless look straight in the face whatever dark secret holds a fearsome sword upon your peace.. rejecting it into one of the farthest recesses of your mind will only make it resurface, more painful, over and over again- like an air filled balloon that you're trying to drown in a lake.. my suggestion? take the needle and prick that sobbing past and you shall escape your shadow just like Peter Pan did :D

Thank you kindly Marabee! :heart:
The past is inescapable, however I don't have any regrets at the present.
... Not many people can say this.
I really appreciate your words. :hug:

You're welcome Tim! :floating:

I was trying to speak from my experience, a pretty harsh one for I was a kid when it all happened, but maybe it is easier to escape a past that you feel you had no real control over. For that matter even adults can be incapacitated at some point, therefore be kinder to yourself and try to forgive yourself- that was the hardest part for me in any case..

True, not many people say this, but then again my whole life I strayed from the herd ;)
You're welcome, I just had a streak of philosophy in my mind at that hour (not sure when and if I can repeat that ;) But I do recommend yoga for fixing your broken soul :floating:

Take care and success with your studies ! :)
