In the Shadows (poem)

Dedication:

To all those struggling with mental illness, may you feel your strength and courage again, may you find your way into the light and not suffer in the shadows. ~~~

Through all this time I move with ease, 
like a fluid stroke or a calming breeze,
I hide so much that no one sees…
Through all these day I watch with eyes
so strong and steady showing no surprise 
I get weary and close them until again I rise…
Through all these years I listen with poise
I hear distant songs of young girls and boys
but find little music amid all the noise… 
Through all this time I’ve hid it well.
Through all this time, not even you could tell.
