A Shadow Of You This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I was always your shadow

Falling close behind

You were perfect

The thought of you was like a dream

I'd close my eyes

You were there before me

Your appearance is the sunset

I am the stars

I'd open my eyes

You were the clouds

beneath I am the trees

I'd look before me

And you were the rain

After I am the rainbow

I wanted to be just like you

So I was always there for you

I'd cry out for attention

Not able to be heard

I'd call your name

You pretended I wasn't there

You were my eyes

The eyes that always protected me

You are the one who inspired me.

Though you are not always there

You take the footsteps

I'll follow as your footprints

Although I am just your shadow

You are the spirit that awakened my life

Big brother, I love you.
