My Shadow

There’s’ a part within me that wants to get out

It’s aching to play out and about



Asks me, begs me to please set him free

Until I will he won’t let me be



But I can’t in my right mind let him go

‘Cause if I will, things will happen, I know



He’ll start lying for me, and waste all my time

And expect me to be his partner in crime



He’ll make me indifferent, I’ll stop to care

I’ll be mean to friends and I’ll never share



And yet he’s asking me, begging me> I don’t know what to do

Can it hurt if its’ just a minute or two?



This struggle goes on, day after day

‘Till I finally decided on a different way



I set up a plan, this time id be tricking him

Once I let him go all proper and prim





I put something on his shoes, a secret surprise

Made them sticky and attached him; ignored all his cries



He is now and forever stuck to the end of my feet

He’s my ghost, my shadow, he’s finally -

Beat.
