You follow me and haunt me
in terrorizing ways.
Your silence keeps me guessing here
in my most frightened gaze.
Sometimes you stalk me from my left -
and sometimes from my right.
Sometimes you're right in front of me -
or just beyond my sight.
Sometimes taller, you appear,
and every day I see you here,
I simply want to flee.
To add some distance, I sometimes
accelerate my pace.
Yet matters not, my quickened step,
I can't increase the space.
You march 'lock-step' along with me
and blatantly impede -
my privacy and liberties
exacting my same speed.
I get enraged and shake my fists -
but you make your fists too.
Once and for all, I'd be so glad
to rid myself of you.
You hang around me mimicking!
I plead with you - just GO!!
I find myself at my wit's end
escaping my own shadow.
Oh yes, just like our shadows,
temptation follows us -
stalking us where e'er we go.
That's why we need Jesus.
