Poem: Walking Amidst The Shadows




Walking Amidst the Shadows


I walk in the darkness among the trees of life

Alone with my thoughts I reach out amidst the strife

Of a mind caught between worlds of tormented desire

They crackle and flash like the flames in the fire


The sparks that ignite me float to diminish

And the shadows dance backwards to a time when we’re finished

To a time beyond this Earth realm where our souls once flew free

To an age of timelessness where no dark would we see


Yet now I walk in the field of my dream

The Shadows creep up and hide amid the trees

For the knowledge we once knew is still bound inside

Waiting to awaken the whole of Mankind.


We need to release the jealousies of hate

And open our hearts, let open up those gates

To release the burdens we place needlessly on guilt

Let go of the shadows, let the love-light be built.


Hold it close heal all you see

Stop the judgement and negativity

Walk a path to truth of who I am

And be content within the Universal Plan.


Be bold, be brave, stop being so naive

Live life in love, so shall you give and receive

Cast your Light and drive the shadows out

Be not afraid of the flame as you shout—

To a world the truth who long ago forgot


Walk in the dawn of conscious thought

Listen to your heart to the battles it has fought

 As I now walk, my path becomes clear

I hold the light, be true and sincere


For each of us journey to a land made of Dreams

Each holds the thread as we stretch at the seams

As the Stars keep on falling sending us the Signs

Mankind is a spec within Cosmic Designs


As for me in my forest of shade

I give thanks to my shadows for the strength that they gave

For without their darkness no light would exist

And my journey on Earth is well worth the risk

For to progress on home the flames sometimes scorch


So let not the shadows hang low where you are

Reach out and take heart, for the Light is our Star..

    This is a powerful Script my good friend, in the multifaceted light that shines through every strand of our being the darkness is replaced with a gentle glow where streams of illumination leads to an explanation of life and its many facets, beyond the gateways of an instance in time lives the reality of all dreams, a beautiful land of authenticity where true love lives on into a time without an end…

    Well written Sue Dreamwalker, I am enjoying backtracking through your postings and whenever I read something as excellent as this fine piece I like to make a comment upon it… I am sure that there will be many postings of this quality as I journey backwards through your Space…

      Why thank you Androgoth, Yes many postings, I will have to back-track through them myself… lol.. for we often get lost within the Shadows of Life ….. I really appreciate your comments upon my works.. you and others make blogging a real pleasure when you know you have made someone think, or helped them see a different view… That is all I hope to achieve to make a small difference upon this world.. one by one… like a ripple forever expanding outwards….. Thank you for being part of that wave Androgoth… 🙂 Sue Dreamwalker

    Sue, this is powerful and it gave me chills while reading it! The last verse was a phenomenal ending, one that can stand alone, as well:

    “As for me in my forest of shade
    I give thanks to my shadows for the strength that they gave
    For without their darkness no light would exist
    And my journey on Earth is well worth the risk
    For to progress on home the flames sometimes scorch
    So let not the shadows hang low where you are
    Reach out and take heart, for the Light is our Star.”.

    Thanks for directing me here, my friend, as your words help me, too, in dealing with the constant shadows that follow us now regarding our daughter’s health. She’s fine now, but she had some bumps this year and we thank God she was able to finish her year in college. One more to go for graduation…we hope the bumps won’t appear for awhile or ever again, but that might be unrealistic.

    Anyway, thanks again for sharing and sorry for the long note. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend and big hugs! ♥

      Lauren never apologise.. Loved reading your thoughts, and I am sure with a positive outlook and Happy Aura your daughter will be fine…. Maybe the stresses caught her and affected her health.. I am so pleased to learn she is coming out shining and can continue her education…
      No more Bumps.. just smooth roads!.. Keep Manifesting…
      And enjoy your time together… And I am pleased this poem resonated well…. I thought it might..
      (( Hugs )) to you all xxx

        Thanks Sue. I see so much quick fluctuation on the planet and in my own being… moving from a place of need and struggle to moments of abundance and resourceful emoting, it seems to happen within a day and it can be very real, going back and forth. Fortunately we have angels both on and off the planet. When we are in the world, as I was yesterday volunteering with the Veterans – we can always experience an exchange in our sense of equality inherent in every moment. “Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle” We are all fighting a battle that hardly anyone else knows about… it was a quote that I saw circulating for a few years now and is very enlightening, as I think it’s very true. Comparisons of haves and have nots are truly unreal.

        It was my great pleasure to read your poem. May your abundance always be your experience and sharing that experience, as we aim, with all others…

          I agree with you Ka, and wonderful you were volunteering to help with the Veterans dear Ka,
          Energies are hitting our planet now on a daily basis, Cycles that have been foretold will soon be affecting everyone’s energy fields and emotions.
          Love that Quote. And yes the battle we have to understand has already been won, It just needs us to help others adjust to the battles many will soon face..
          We have ALL chosen to be here to help facilitate the energies that are already hitting our planet.
          Its time for me to step up into my own game, and share more of that which has been brought to me.. Whether people will understand, believe, or not, that is their choice… But I have to follow what is deeply ingrained within me..
          My silent retreat has been revealing, as I have found a new Calm and sense of BEing.
          Many thanks dear Ka.. Lovely to catch you to chat.. ❤ Hugs
          I know our missions are entwined in that we Hold the Light, and share insights, hoping others will grasp what we have come to know..
          LOVE and Blessings ❤

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
