The Shadow

The Shadow 
     follows me
            but it’s not mine

I run 

   It grabs me
and
  sits on my chest


I can’t 
    breathe!
       
You’re 
    strangling 
             me!

I’m so 
    terrified 
I will turn into you!

I’m not living
           my life!

Enough!

    With this pen
I will 
   fulfill my destiny!


I will 
  accomplish 
       EVERYTHING
you said 
    I wouldn’t!


You’re not 
       holding me back
                    anymore!

Neither 
am 
I!
