This poem focuses about a teacher and student relationship..... in which the student reveals his/ her feelings about his/her teacher and how much he/she is inspired by the teacher...which makes their relationship even more special.
This poem is about what happens to a boy who was born in shadows and thought that he would never be able to get out. He never spoke out because he thought that it wasn't really his place to do so and he also thought that no one would listen. This could be us. We become ensnared in the shadows of life and we start to think and feel negative things but we keep it to ourselves, thinking that it'll be alright and that we'll get over it, not realizing that it could destroy us.
