Facing the Shadow - A Poem

Author:

Facing the Shadow

The many colors all spread out

To all show what my soul’s about

Unlocking pieces with a key

To show me what my eyes can’t see.


There are many tasks to complete

Time to get comfy in my seat

Facing the fears stemmed from shadows

Working through what my mind’s eye shows


This shadow work I have to face

All my faults I have to embrace

It will be worth it in the end

Cause both my heart and soul can mend.


This poem is based on my semi-recent short story Unlocking the Mind. At some point, the poem shifted away from the simple story of unlocking doors in your mind to facing your fears and faults to become a better person overall, which is something everyone should take the time to do.
