Chasing Shadows

The whole time I was waiting for you to learn your lesson about joy,
I wasn’t learning my own about
Letting go.
You kept yourself in darkness and gloom while I chased after your spirit.
Believing I could use my light to create yours.
But all I did was exhaust myself
In your storm of shadows.
You would glance back now and then,
I would take it as a sign
To keep trying.
But you were only hoping I had
Realized not to chase a shadow,
Not to try to change another,
But to stop in my own path,
And shine.
