The Shadow Keepers by Joel F

The Shadow Keepers, a poem about power of thoughts, mind control, joys of joel poems
The Shadow Keepers –

It is only when there’s a sun
that my shadow is all around
Should i be glad when i see one
in the midst of the glaring sun?

“keep your face to the sun
and you will never see the shadows,”
An old saying worth remembering
but sometimes it’s confusing.

For why is it when it’s dark
the shadow seem to stay
and even when there’s some light,
it doesn’t go away.

Until i see the moonlight
behind the starless night
and see a smiling sun
beneath the cloudy sky

Then I realized
that shadows only stay
if we allow its might
to block our rays of light

The hope that goes astray
The fear that lies today
The thoughts i keep a day
will really make it stay.

Don’t fall for that mistake
to blame it all somewhere
The truth is just within
that lies within our brain

It is only then that i decipher
that my thoughts are the shadow keepers.
