The Shadow

Showing Nerve means loving yourself wholeheartedly, including the shadows, as Amy Beth Acker's poem shows

 

shadow

By Amy Beth Acker

 

The shadow beyond the pale

Is:

A tie that binds

Cutting of the trickle

Of life

That flowed through my fingers…

My…

 

And too:

A vast and endless

 

Field

 

Where the light is

Above, around

And,

I am reminded:

within.
