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.
