Mystic – Shadow
Every single part of me is open for inspection,
every single thought and feeling
subject for reflection.
An opportunity to feel for self
and reconcile with my other.
Every emotion is a signpost
that points to the state of love I’m in.
Every thought and word directs the mind
into believing how its story goes,
but I choose to begin all over again
by learning to the love the skin I’m in.
Every bite out of life,
every trigger, every button,
every symbol, every sign,
every intent and expectation
gives the opportunity to see myself
through my shadow’s eyes
and look into the light.
The Poetry of Archetypes are written by Sulaiman Mackay
Sulaiman Mackay is a lifelong lover of writing poetry and has been particularly enamored with it since arriving at middle-age. He has realized it is a powerfully evocative and revealing means of self discovery and conscious development. He started writing poems about archetypes as a way of expressing his inner work, discovering the light and shadow aspects of his psyche, and to explore the energetics of the archetypal experience. He has recently completed an Honours Degree in Creative Communications at the University of Canberra and is currently looking for a way to turn his love for the written word into paid work.
