Shadow metaphor

Dawn breaks early over one
Twilight breaks later over another

The sun and moon are always
A shadow is what changes
Our view 

 Are you a shadow that changes
How one views another
Are you twilight or are you
The dawn

Do you Brighten or darken 
The horizons of others

Forsake twilight and be the dawn
That brightens the morning
Of others lives

Do not sink below the horizon
 Like some do
Rather rise above it and shine
Brightly for all to see

Remember the sun and moon
 Are always full 
It's a shadow that changes our view

Are you a shadow?

Thank you Darlene for such a kind comment. I'm sorry I haven't been on soup but I'm involved with another project which takes most of my time. I hope to be back soon
