I used to be a shadow.
Lingering and dark,
Always present but never known.
Here to there I followed others,
And took whatever form they cast.

But now I am a light.
Pure and bright,
Leading my own way,
Wherever the path may wander;
And now shadows follow me.

I wrote this for an English class but didn't realize how much i loved it until my teacher had it published in a school thing. That kind of made it for me.
