Shadows 24/08/2016 11:12 In unexperienced infancy Mistakes seemly false, intending true Adult features with grown up looks To show many secrets which afterwards you come to know And make fool in all sort of ways You are a shadow of yourself Many years on, the thoughts so tinctured with no reason And craftiness exist in great perception Standing up tall yet craddled in low esteem Premonitions banging out loud, no ears to listen Your inseparable companion whoose manifestation you ignorantly take A pestiferous self you will later know a shadow of yourself Speakers lament the you in you is you We get the code but some make no atone A popular saying that everyone is unique and special I doubt, for some are but specialist in the shadow of themselves Permit me to yowl at the single ladies Having geniue apathy for whom they really are Taking peeks at their foggy look Social media tinted with their glamorous artifacts Seductively dressed to earn fb likes Little flesh will turn them on, their fetish say They forget you are addressed the way you dress Having no respect for womanhood Solace sister in practice You are but a shadow of yourself She's such a beauty to behold Not so sure if it's love or lust You sugar coated mouth presenting levels you don't worth Even though you fake all just to impress her The real you is a cloud of fine particle that can't be hidden A life full of pride is a life of shadow A mouth filled with lies sees no reality but shadows The more we grow, the more we know After a time of been just a shadow We are now strong to walk alone for We are not created a shadow #honesty #sincerity #direction #integrity are what makes you a YOU Be real, for anyone aside You is already taken!
