A bit of poetry

She could move mountains
She could swim the biggest oceans
She could walk around the globe
She could climb the tallest tree

People would cheer her on
And she would smile
People would back her up
And she would keep going
People would look up to her
And she would be proud

One day
The Mountains stopped moving
The Oceans seemed too wide
The Globe was too far
And the Tree reached the sky

People would say "What happened to you?"
She didn't know why
People would say "There's nothing wrong with you"
And she would sigh
People would say"Your not the person I knew"
And just like that she'd cry out of the blue

The mountains she climbs are the ones in her mind
The oceans she sails are the ones back in time
The trails she trecks are short but sweet
The trees she climbs now
Are passed down by the young children
That run around her feet

She was strong and tough
And did many things
But disease and illness has left its mark
In the physical body
But not the mind and the heart

On the outside…people see what once was
But its her heart and soul that shines
And that is What the Shadow or Herself Does
