The shadow among us [by August Schwaner]

[Note: My son August, 9, wrote this poem on a sick day last week.]

The shadow among us

The shadow
among us searches

for inner
love only
to get bitter
coldness and
despair for it grasps

love   fear  hate
and sadness
but only to

find it has
betrayed itself
within.
