Gideon’s Challenge


they are not
so easily seen
but whisper in the darkness
a layer of shadow
lying beneath
the visible shade.
Then the light shines
and the show up
in stark relief
even when trying to hide.

Insecurity is my shadow.  Whether it is the “never good enough” insecurity or the “unapproachable and distant” insecurity or… any of various others.  They are all a whisper in the darkness.  They hide and lurk, shift in the peripheral, out of sight and out of mind until the light shifts… and they are then seen.
