In the shadows

That's where I lie

Begging for your attention,

When you finally look

You laugh

or

Call me names,

Your shadow is over me

It makes me seem so small

and

Unimportant,

You have more than me

But

I need to believe

That you are not more than me

I need to believe that

I am not

In the shadows...
