Who are You

A shadow is what I would be
freedom to move and change
now a bird next a castle
ever becoming other things

No one to boss or own me
Traveling where I will
walls no obstacle for me
I sit in on matters of state

Nothing new happening there
shifting from shape to shape
always present,  in mist form
try to catch me and I vanish

Then reappear across the room 
I am there yet I am not there
blink and I am gone from sight
a shadow that is the life for me
