Why is it that she gets all the glory? Why don’t I get a mention? I hate how we do the exact same things and yet she’s the one that gets all the recognition! In the end she’s the one they all praise, and I’m the one they blatantly ignore. It’s not fair! Sometimes I stand right beside her, and there they still turn away from me!

I want to be the one that they all talk to for once. I don’t want to be chased away in the darkness anymore. I don’t want to be hidden away.

In fact, I’ll do it today. I’ll take her place. I will no longer be her shadow. I will not be shadowed.


Thank you for reading!

Love, Nicole.
