If I were as tall as my shadow… [POEM]

Stretching beyond the obstacle
bending to fit the path
contorting throughout my adversity
finding fit, at last

If I were as tall as my shadow

Hidden within the silence
but there I’d surely be
upon just a sliver of ambience
my presence would certain to please

If I were as tall as my shadow

I would reach and I would crawl
I would stand and I would fly
I would have no purpose to fall
I would be expected to survive

If I were as tall as my shadow

The darkness dare not find me
for the light shall set me free
whether or which is to happen
I am sure to cast my being

If I were as tall as my shadow

No monster could be so great
No mountain would be so tall
No monument should stand my way
none of it, not at all…

If I were as tall as my shadow
