The legacy you leave is the one you live

Learn to be alone;
Even shadows may leave you,
When it's dark around.

Wonderful haiku! It's really an art to be able to convey such a clear idea in so few syllables. The metaphor is really interesting too!

This haiku is one of the most perfect I've read on TI- just how haikus are supposed to be. This should have been published, and I'm oh so happily adding it as one of my favourites. Congratulations on your talent!

I need to leave a comment because this poem is so amazing... but I have nothing to really comment about. Lovely, dark, and haunting, all in just 17 syllables.

I absolutely love it!!! I love the simplicity of it but how powerful it is still in the short amount of words, very well written!!!! Keep on writing!!! 5/5

“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

I like this a lot. Good job. :)

This is really good and mysterious. It's very ambiguous. Well done! :)
