make friends

make friends 1.21.15
sometimes
someone
catches your shadow
in a spotlight
of pure love

it is blinding
painful
to see your fear
naked
lying there

you may
claim it
give it
your name
and pull the light
into your soul

or you may
disown it
pretend
you do not know
and have the dark
follow you home

make friends with your shadow
–not excuses for it–

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
