Fearing the Shadows

It's always been about me

My achievements

My fears

My prejudices

My anxieties

My triumphs

My sorrows

My losses

You were just… there

Merely existing

And then you lit up

Like a thousand lamps

And now it's all about you

But not your fears

Anxieties

Sorrows

Losses

Only you achievements

Laurels

Triumphs

And I'm afraid

That your light will never go out

And I will be pushed into the shadows

Forgotten
