Shadow Who Stepped Into The Light

I was the kid who was stuck in the shadows

Left and right, others went and did nothing with me,

just step on me and ignoring my existence

Comedy is not my forte

but I was viewed as a joke

With no voice to defend myself

I was there in the shadows

 

Something ticked within me

I did not want to be forgotten like the shadows

that linger to some people

I needed people to know that I am here

and here to stay

 

I knew that I can be the person to rise up

to those who had that doubt to me

to those who never acknowledged me

to those who just did not give me the chance to be me, myself and I

 

I am that person who takes the past

twists and turns it to create a whole new me

Changing and evolving from the darkness that always covered me

stepping into the light that makes the shadow around me go away

 

I am the person who makes up who I am

the shadow that haunted me has now became a friend to me

who I will look for guidance when the times are tough

as well as a memory that changed me for the better

I am a strong individual who changes from the shadows into the light

This poem is about: 
Me
