Shadows and Dust

The shadow another side of me,
the reflection of your perception
an incredible deception,
visible in the dark
like the moon I suppose
What you oppose
I compose
Look at the mirror
I see the same face
But ponder on the reality
To define my existence
so unreal,
and reveal an tainted soul
I close my eyes
And the sky starts drawing me away,
I feel non existence with memories of yesterday,
yesterday could tell a story of today
to arch in such a way that fills the streets with silence
The shadow
like the art f deception
is to look the same
But not for all to share the blame
Nor the fame
See after birth comes death
that is not a curse
its just nature way to create a balance
My shadow tells me
you are not better that me
just because you can afford to buy a steak
And I can not
its just vanity that makes you feel you have value more than me
see if you can never be me
you can never be better than me
we all as filthy as dust from whence we came
So when the present becomes the past
and dust turns to dust
like love and lust
We All but shadows and dust'
