Shadow Girl

By Kathy Sherban

Shadow Girl

I am a shadow
of what coulda been
a fragmented shell
somewhere in-between
Then n' now
tragically consumed
swallowed by life
survival assumed
Yet here I am
treading in quicksand
my arms outstretched
seeking your hand
Asking for help
navigational tools
a personal compass
the book of rules
Knowing full well
here's where it's at
owning my value
I'm way more than that
