a poem to read to a scared child

it is a hard thing, to run from your own

shadow

you will be running for a long 

time

 

you will have to run past many beautiful moments

and places

who will want to love

you

 

you will have to run through many gentle friends 

and lovers

who will want to know

you

 

you will have to keep running and 

running and running 

and running

until you have made it all the way around 

the World

 

and when you finally arrive at the very place

you started from 

so long ago

there you will find

your own shadow

patiently waiting 

for you
