A Poem By Patrick Lindemann 1/1/2019

Living in the shadows of life



how am I seen

when will I be seen

seen for who I am

am I seen at all


walking into a room

seeing everyone

being seen by no one

living in the shadows of life


having the whole world in front of me

the world not knowing I am there

I see the stars

do they see me


through the windows of my soul

I see myself

the truth is clear

the path is visible and ready to take


I know who I am

those who don’t know me

don’t know themselves

I know who I am


for who I am

for the path I take

for the stars I see

the world Is mine


I will not stop

reaching for the stars

I will take the world as mine

I know who I am
