Light and Shade

A tanka inspired by @tinanguyen’s #5poem writing prompt:

your shadow darkens
everything that I can be
I step into light
I throw off the cloak of you
to find my own light and shade

  1. I can be who I am as soon as I do not let you define me or my destiny. Aftet all, you did not create me or give me my abilities or talents from the start. Therefore I will not be clouded by your version of I own you. I have embraced the light!

  2. Well said! Thank you for your eloquent comment; it is greatly appreciated. Thank you also for being a new subscriber. I hope you enjoy the poetry and essays on this site. God bless!
