The smallest darkness juxtaposes light
Existing, utilizing its polar opposite.
Following close behind in the night.
Inching closer to us, the true cause of it.
Mimicked and mocked, I continue to move
Regardless of the broken half of me
Dragging along with nothing to lose
And no ears to hear nor eyes to see.
Through each journey, the darkness is there
Tapping my shoulder, reminding the body
Of a time
more difficult and and unclear
Of a time
When feelings hurt and no one saw me.
Nothing is alone on a earth with billions of lives
Especially when shadows commit to a reveal
Those who foil a dark history with bright times
Found life in a shadow in which they appeal.
Each mountain climbed strengthens it’s figure,
Every emotion and thought sinks into its shape.
Growing stronger each day to the body it lingers.
Connected to out heels, never early or late.
How we feel and what we say
How to be with us when we are stray.
But who caused this darkness attached to our hip?
Was it us or the environment in which we breathe?
Why does it feels like oversized cargo on a ship?
Whomever it is, it’s a part of me until the earth I leave.
