Like A Shadow Fading (Poem)

Just a fictitious person who faintly exists like a smudge on the page of a dusty old history book, no one cares to read. Like a shadow fading away as the sun goes to sleep between the clouds covered under the sheets of the stary night sky. Like a vapor lasting for a brief moment only to disappear into particles naked to the eye.

Writer, Poet & Entrepreneur One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since. I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to. My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people. I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through. And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”. I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
