Shadow Left Behind (Poem)
Updated: May 12, 2020
On entering the church the sign read, "Please leave your shadow behind at the door.” No shadows are permitted here, for beautiful people cast no shadow. All are healthy, wealthy and fulfilled, problems are something of the past. Beautiful people in designer clothes are so thin they cast no shadow, amid the flashing lights and mega music. Yet real people cast shadows that meander across the whole of life, which only the grace of God can dispel.
