Parents' Shadow

Updated: Apr 23, 2021

Created May 5, 2020

I lived in my parents’ shadow,

Always seeking permission,

Always fearful of their wrath,

Always shutting out my heart,

Since I lived in their shadow.

I’m breaking from their shadow,

Not asking for permission

Not breaking down from their wrath,

Not shutting out my heart’s voice

I’m breaking from their shadow.

I live outside their shadow,

Living with my permission,

Having courage from their wrath,

Embracing my heart’s calling,

I live outside their shadow.

Now, I look at their shadow,

Understanding permission,

Sensing love within their wrath,

Synchronizing with my heart,

Lessons learnt from their shadow.
