The Reflection of Shadows: How You Show Me

The Reflection of Shadows
A collection of moments

How You Show Me

If you showed me happiness,
If you showed me joy,
These are the tools that
I would employ.

If you shook my confidence,
Took my self respect,
These are the things that
Would stay in my head.

If you show me bigotry,
You show me hate,
This is what
I will duplicate.

It’s the way that you teach me,
The way that you show,
That builds the foundation
For the seeds that I’ll sow.

It’s the way that you speak to me,
The love that you grow
That leads me to better things
Or drags me below.
