I remember the day

I stopped running from my shadow.

I still didn’t like it

But we both knew

It wasn’t going anywhere.

It kept following, as I walked along my journey.

Sometimes more obvious

Sometimes only a faint outline.

My feet hurt less

With less running away.

I got to know my shadow.

In time,

And much to my surprise,

Things felt different between us.

It kept following

But it had stopped chasing.

From then, calmly,

We walked together.

And to this day we are

(as we were always)
