I Am...

I've encouraged them from the shadows

Have found others and helped them take stage

Helped them find the spotlight

And from the shadows,

I've watched their accomplishments

Like they were actors on stage

Only they weren't acting

And I was so proud of them

Because they found who they were

But in the mean time, 

There was still someone in the shadows-

Myself-

I never found myself

Because I was so busy

Trying to help others locate their own

I D E N T I T Y

And they were such beautiful identities

How could I ever find something that wonderful

When all I've known is the shadow's darkness?

So I'll stand in the shadows a while longer

Until I can find myself

Because I know I still can find exactly

Who I am.

Me
