Counterpoint to a poem written by a great friend.
From the shadows
I watch you in silence.
On the edge of a cliff
peering at the valley below,
I see you,
feeling small,
insignificant, and obsolete.

From the shadows
I watch you in silence,
riding on the wings of a bird
all alone and nearly
hidden by clouds
sailing by far below.

From the shadows
I watch you in silence,
as you sit upon
your throne of loneliness.
I long to be among
the people
bowing and scraping.

From the shadows
I watch you in silence.
I am the fields of spring.
I am the grass.
I am your everything,
except your path to freedom.
