Never far way, the companion follows.
An unwelcome traveler, tracking my steps.
I know the shadow is there, but I never know where.
I run fast, but not always fast enough.
I'm caught, and the shadow surrounds me.
All is darkness, direction is lost.
I know light exists outside the shadow,
but how deep is the darkness?
Will I break out into light with the next step,
or will the journey out of the dark be long?
I'll keep moving, keep hoping that the next step...
... will bring light.
