Cast a light

Posted: June 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

Shadows have a defined cast

Some build the future

Others raise the past

 

How far you travel

How high you get

How hidden you could be

Shadows are the ones that decide

 

Longer they get with year that passes

Truth has ways to get by

River starts from a droplet

Life starts with a past and shadow it casts

 

Nothing you have seen

Anything you have done

Thoughts that you erased

Moments that you regret

Everything has a cast and they become our shadows

Thatโ€™s why I now have a fear of the dark

The dark of my past the beast within me and the saint which breathes
