The little shadow you've happened upon
Is not as helpless and shamed as it appears
Not as paralyzed by paranoia and fears
As may be thought on first inspection
Never trying to achieve any sort of perfection
This shadow child’s already shed a million tears
A specter become content with imperfections
There is beauty in darkness
A safe place to dwell within
There is no need to fear it
Sometimes to hide in the shadow
Is the best way to go
Keeping out of the sun
Before the world can kill you
With sensory overload
There is a long road
Best traveled at night
There won’t always be
Someone there to hold you tight
Keep out of plain view
But keep well aware
When it’s time to show
You’ll know the time is right

"Verses Short & Sweet"
A Poetry Collection by Richard Rowell
Lyn Lomasi & Richard Rowell are life & business partners. Owners of Brand Shamans & the Write W.A.V.E. Media network, we are your brand healing, soul healing, & content superheroes to the rescue!
Running our network of websites, tackling deadlines single-handedly, and coaching fellow writers, brands, & entrepreneurs to be thought leaders is our top priority.
While rescuing civilians from boring content and brands, we conquer the world, living the RV life and managing our Intent-sive Nature with our awesomely crazy family while recounting The Nova Skye Story, along with Kymani’s Travels.
We also strive to one day cuddle with lions and giraffes. Until then, we’ll settle for furry rescue kitties and doggies.
We support many causes via our business ventures, such as homelessness, support for trans youth, equality, helping starving artists, and more! A portion of all proceeds from Intent-sive Nature goes toward helping homeless pets in local shelters.
