Endlessy closer to the light you will go
Exponentially more, your shadow shall grow.
Yet for each attempt and each desire
Your shadows right there, to share the prize.
Mankind can succeed and learn a whole life
Snuggled and bonded, your shadow lies tight
This is for good, for those whom feel guilty
An interesting dose of philosophical commentary
The shadow you see is really a good thing
For if you walk in the dark, that should make you think
The light, the good, the helper of them all
Would trust the shadow to catch what could fall
The darkness, and bad, times of unhappy things
Your shadows not there, to dampen the sting
Trust that shadow outside or in
Find it in all the visibly beautiful things
So just when you think this is now getting weird
Look at the floor or the wall and look who appears
And remind yourself that your shadows are great
For it gives you extra energy, to carry your weight
