"Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine” -Ralph W. Emerson

Sitting in the shadows of life

losing faith in my hopes for a brighter day.

Unknowing of the valiant efforts

being made by the sun,

trying to shed its light on me


I’ve always believed there was someone out there,

blocking those rays from all angles.

Not only taking in the light

but also walking this road of life

in lieu of me


And as i wallow in this pothole

it is he that is soaking in all of the glory,

casting nothing but a shadow

on my entire existence


The Ego
