My Shadow And I
Author: Terrie*


I woke up from an dream last night
it was an incredible sight.
from what i could see
my shadow was chasing me.

it wasn't scary or anything of the sort
just reminding me that life is too short.
i use the revolving door a bit too much
life in general i'm out of touch.

into my life i took a peek
i have no life,basically i work 7 days a week
my life slowly on by it drifts
some days i work 16 hour shifts.

my shadow has always stood behind me
last night it was chasing me so i could see.
to work less,enjoy life more
put a halt to the revolving door.

my shadow is known to be wise
so tomorrow i'm going to take it's advice
