I'm interested in social issues, relationships, problems of daily living, jobs, exercise, poems and fiction, plus safer living conditions.
Brenda Arledge has given us a new prompt, ‘shadow’, which is number 22. We have the option of writing a poem, story or song. I personally found this word difficult to come up with a good response. My muse was not working!
I tried to write an acrostic poem, but I didn’t like the result. Finally, I started writing a poem about some thoughts on shadows versus sunshine and comparing them to our walk through life.
The unique thing about poetry is that it is a different way to express yourself. I try to express a deeper meaning, and I don’t always succeed. I do hope you enjoy this poem.
Tim McGraw - Humble And Kind
Shadow or Sunshine
When we’re humble we aren’t vane
Love your neighbor it's so plain
The sun will shine for us to see
A shadow of the one in front of me
Live your life with no regrets
Living and loving is no sweat
Put one foot in front of the other
Treat each one like a brother
We see no shadow with the rain
We often focus on our own pain
The shadow is not where to walk
Act now, do not be just all talk
Walking through your long life
Try to live it without any strife
Enjoy the sun's golden rays
Shining on you all your days
Walking On Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves
