My Shadow



It follows me around
Day and night
Sometimes it is visible
Other times out of sight

A silent spectator
Of all that I do
It haunts, it stalks
Keeps an eye on me too

Never utters a word
Nor does it judge me
Like the unseen conscious
It follows silently

Sometimes it scares me
As it looms dark and large
Appearing, disappearing
Vivid and stark

Yet sometimes reassures me
Its presence like a friend
That shares life’s ups and downs
And remains till the very end
