A Shadow Speaks


Ishan Saleh '25


Boo! Ha, I scared ya didn’t I? Who am I? Oh you should know who I am. I’m always with you. When you sleep, when you eat, when you make decisions I’m there. I’m that pang of doubt in your head. That idea that, maybe this isn’t a good idea. Maybe I’m not good enough to do this. I’m that voice that leads you back to the path when you stray too far. The thing that pulls you back to the right direction. I’m your inner doubts, the things in your head that cause you to always second guess yourself. I’m the cold, hard, honest truth. I’m a necessary evil in. And I finally have a voice.
