Hiding in the Shadows

"Hiding in the shadows, makes it impossible to move forward." ~unknown

Hiding in the Shadows

by Ellen Bailey
Do not stand in the shadow of someone else
When you can cast a shadow of yourself
A shadow is your reflection on the ground
It must be distinct if it is to be found

Step out of the darkness and into the light
Display your personal talents without fright
A day will come when you are called to lead
Do not shrink from your chance to succeed

Move to the forefront and take control
Seize the challenges of life and be bold
Don't let someone else take your place
You are a unique member of the Human Race
