Catching Shadows

Try catching shadows a child’s game.
Thrilling and exhausting.
Impossible to outrun our shadows.
Their appearance and disappearance
A bit scary.
They can be seen but unable to touch.
Unwanted companions are they.

Adult shadows feel palpable.
Fear, anger, rage, worthlessness, sadness
Tumble out of our shadows.

Seen by others
Embarrassing

Our acceptance slow.
