Me or My Shadow!!


I walk around, aimless
thinking about nothing
when a form catches my eye.
And it is mine, my shadow!

I follow it, curious
towards a huge white wall.
The shadow grows larger,
and I stare, fascinated!

The closer I get,
the bigger the shadow gets,
dark and threatening,
it looms over me, frightening!

I lower my eyes, afraid
of my own shadow.
But then, I realize
the shadow begins at my feet!

I walk into light, it darkens,
I walk into dark, it vanishes.
So who's real? I wonder
Me or My Shadow!
