The shadow he casts.

The shadow he casts.

Will you ever truly learn to live, to love,

Will you ever actually look and choose to see,

That the pain and fear inside your heart,

It stems from what he, wanted you to be.

Will you ever once try to understand,

The hidden depths of your own soul,

Will you ever find the strength, have courage,

To question that truth, to which you cleave to, control.

Will you ever once look in the mirror,

Discover why you are here, at this point today,

Will you ever dare to acknowledge your true self?

And the part in your failings, that you, yourself play.

Will you ever be more than a conqueror?

More than an anti-hero, an opinionated man,

Will you ever once stop and just listen,

Or was listening never part of your plan.

Will you ever seek to consider,

The constructive dismissals you so readily make,

Will you ever endeavour to make amends?

Or are you more at ease with all things untrue, fake.

Will you ever face up to your own lies, misgivings?

Will you ever confess to your sin?

Will you ever own up to the fact that your wrong,

Will you ever let your healing begin?

Will you ever admit you’ve been played?

Or will vested interest ever stand in your way,

Will you ever be bound all the days of your life?

To the shadow of a man and all that he could not say.
