Light and Dark

The world mirrors my reflection

I see my face everywhere I look

Windows, walls, and people

All wear my pale face

 

I see the light and wish to hide

Shadows and darkness are my friends

Protect me from my fears

and shield me from the light

 

 I urge to venture out

To take risks I've never known

To try to fly once more

 

One step forward

Two steps back

A constant tug of war

The two teams being

My stubborn brain and broken heart

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
