I faded into my corner,
Because light had caught me.
So much light was not what I wanted,
Because I can’t see.
My sanctuary is safer no more,
Because I could not be the shadow I wanted to be.
I avoided the glimpse of my stalker,
Because I realized I could not, any longer, flee.
I thrived on short, simple, sweet and innocent,
Because I did not grasp that losing ethics is the ‘new’ success key!
