Shadow | Teen Ink

I am a quiet
person almost lonely inside
Never seen sad because
i dont want to
show it Not the
onw to stand out
in the crowd
"Am i scared"
i ask myself
"No" I reply "I
am my own" You
only truly see me
when you are close
to me I am
a shadow in the
forest surching for light
Sometimes scared to show
my true self I
stay in the back
waiting to come out
and greet people.
