Hidden in the Shadows

My ideas hidden in
the shadows for
fear of causing pain
My thoughts and
beliefs hidden for the same

My feelings hidden in the
shadows for the better
of others
so I've nicknamed my
feelings spy because
they stay undercover

My past experiences stay hidden in
the shadows because that is my
pain alone
unless it can ease a friends pain
then my experiences are shown

My fear of failing as a father
remains hidden in the shadows
because failure is not an option
because when it's all said
and done failing myself is OK
but I can't fail my son

As life goes on much of
me will remain hidden in
the shadows in fear of the light
because despite it feeling good
alot of time it hurts to do what's
right

The whole text is very expressful and easy to relate too, but especially that phrase caught me.
Excellent writing!
