The Shadow

The Shadow



Only dreamers
Standing in the shadows 
Free of judgment and rejection 
Masking their fears 
Their eyes are 
The window to their souls 
Where all of their secrets hide 
The cries of their hearts 
Cannot be seen 
And their tears 
Cannot be touched 
Sometimes the shadow 
In the dark comes out 
Walking towards 
A wishful dream

The storm raged 
In their hearts 
Lightning flashed 
Through their souls 
Rain drops splashed 
Against their body 
Waves crashing 
In their hands 
Breaking on the shore 
All their anger sinks 
Into the ocean floor 
A stream of light flashes 
Through their eyes 
Breaking through 
The clouds of doubt 
A gentle breeze blowing 
Whispering 
Through the grass 
Listening 
To the sounds 
It seems to have 
Some kind of power 
Darkness flies 
Blue times fade away

Knowing 
The chances 
Knowing 
The fears 
Living 
On the edge 
They realized then 
It would be 
Worth their while 
To step out 
Of the shadow 
Into the light 
And walk the path 
To treasure their moment 
That will set their hearts free
