Born in this world
I felt someone was following me
Someone was waiting for me
Keeping track of me and my actions
Keeping my thoughts in records

He would hide whenever I looked back
Sometimes showing his glimpse
But I would never be able to touch him
I felt I wasn’t alone
But something dark would give me company

Scared of darkness even though was a part of it.
But in light stronger was his appearance.
He would laugh when I laughed,
And cry when I cried.
Always fighting by my side
And never left me alone for anything

Never thought I would say this out loud,
But he was the only one who stood by me,
In my weakest days and strongest nights.
As I struggled and as I triumphed.
I hope he stays with me as long as my last breath
Because I am used to him more than anyone else.
