Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 39

Challenge

This week, I give you a poem, and you write a piece in any format based on that thought process. Go against the flow, if that is what you genuinely feel, and make your point.

my shadows

( Me and my inflated ego) 

Sometimes in front of me       

Sometimes it was behind 

sometimes on the left       

Sometimes on the right 

Sometimes you are within me 

And sometimes stand outside 

I thought I was bigger and better           

Far superior and tall 

And you are merely my shadow           

Destined just to follow me  

But what you did to me             

Was fair not at all 

treachery one  may call 

As I was no more alive       

and you were doing the jive

( It is rightly said

in your bad times

even your shadow

leaves you)

~ Indira 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. The last line made me think – How? Is it the soul or shadow? Good one 🙂
