All The Shadows

All The Shadows

written by: David Dephy

 

I tasted fear and tasted doubt
and saw many bruises on the
body of living itself.

I see –
doubt is deadlier than bullets
and fear will cut you deeper
than knives.

But I also see –
the sounds of doubt and fear
are disappearing, like all the shadows
in the afternoons.
