The shadow of the past
Looks down at me,
Stretching its wild, slender fingers.
It comes back again
To trap me in a never-ending maze.

I look up with a vain hope
In search of a saviour,
A knight in shining armour
Riding on a white royal horse.
I gasp for a breath!

Moments pass like eternity
As I drown deeper and deeper
My toes touch the oceanic blue floor.
I paddle relentlessly, waving my hands in the air
But nothing can save me from myself.

Until I wake up from the depths of the water
And bury that shadow —
Dead in my heart.
A regained consciousness, a new gift of life
It’s no more looking back for me.
