Moth on a surreal blue background

Poem about Hiding your Gifts: The Haunting

The Haunting of the Moth

I’m haunting you

Hidden keeper of the light

You cannot run

I have the power of flight


I’ll catch you before you know it

Expose your skills

& fear blocking

Keep moving and I’ll keep chasing


That fear that resides within you

The one that bubbles up at night

That’s your past talking

Pulling me out of plain sight


You can’t escape the Mothman

I see in the dark but am guided by the light

I’ll haunt you and hunt you down forever

Until you expose your secret untold light
