Walking through the forest

dimly lit as the sun tries to shine through

i gaze behind me

and all I see

are the shadows of the past

people I called friends

who now laugh behind my back

people who betrayed me

who I tried to forget

I have no need

for the shadows of the past

Begone and bother me no longer

for I am a new man

and the laughter will soon stop

when you finally realize

that all the things you said

weren't funny to begin with

the pain and heartache

were dealt by the shadows of the past

and I have no more need for you.
