SHADOWS

 

We meet people
so many
travelling
in pubs or schools
black or white
christians or muslims
fair or nasty ones
mean or compassionate

Each with their destinies
with stories to tell
their happiness and sorrows
we talk with them,
listen to them,
share segments of life
to see them go back
each to walk the paths
of their individual lives

Nothing abides
neither the memories
shadows fading away
in the darkness of the past
