In The Shadows

There is something

That few know of

But is transparent to many

Kept in the dark and loyal to no one

Hoping that no one can find it

It is a silent killer

Pouncing on the slightest sense of innocence

Give it an inch,

It goes a mile

It is not an Atomic Bomb

Or the Bubonic Plague

It is all but the slightest notion

Of injustice

This poem shows us that not everything that hurts us is seen by the eye. We must know what can hurt us, and help the ones in need. Don't let the hidden things come out and hurt you, so be aware and stand up for yourself in dark times.
