Goodbye, Dark Shadows

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've become detached.
I am one who has awakened,
From all that has held me back.

Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
Get up and off my path.
I am not the one to be saddled,
With anything to drag from my past.

My thoughts have been relieved,
Of anything dragged from my past.
And I refuse to relive and breathe,
Anything dragged from my past.
No painful memories,
Will visit with me to grasp.

Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
I've become detached.
I am one who has awakened,
From everything that held me back.

Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
Get up and off my path.
You are not gonna strap and saddle,
Anything dragged from the past.
No more groaning to condone,
Anything dragged from my past.
Shutting down tears I've wept for years,
Has dried up quick and fast.

Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
I've finally given you the shaft.
So...
Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
I'm feeding on the light at last.
A light that's on and streams with beaming,
Everything on my path.

Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
And clouds that came with rain.
Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
All doubts are gone to claim.
Goodbye,
Dark shadows.
A change in me remains.
