Beware not to walk in the sun
The brighter the light, the darker the shadow
Don't be fooled by the rising sun
The straighter the light, the longer the shadow
Beware not to face the glaring light
Don't try to laugh or act delight
The harder you try, the heavier the shadow
For, the light is the world looking at you
The mask of mirth, your struggle for acceptance
The shadow, your sadness and your insecurities
For the light is just a milestone to be crossed in the run of life
Today it's in the front, tomorrow you leave it behind.
But the shadow is what sticks around.
You think you got by with your mask as you walk past the smiling light
But you only need to look back, to see the world laughing at your shadow from behind.
