Fighting With the Shadows in My Head

Updated on July 3, 2011

Fighting With the Shadows in My Head

Turning thoughts consume your actions
As you stumble through this life
Your movements are wavered back and forth
Shadows seem to follow
You can see them from the outside but within
You are fighting with the shadows in your head
The words that were spoken so cruel follow me
The looks that I could read
The jestures and the ways that cause me to fear your actions to come
Degrade, belittle,dishonesty , anger , all alone,and loneliness, and more consume me
Anything to make you to stand taller you'll say or do
Tell all my faults but never yours
Behind close doors the shadows grow

And as I walk out never to return this is what I take with me
And I will always be
Fighting with the Shadows in My Head

      Very powerful and moving graebear. I love the imagery I get when I dwell on the phrase "fighting with the shadows in my head." At some point in our lives we have shadows in our heads that we need to fight or end up fighting. Thank you for sharing this.
