My shadow

When I move my shadow moves Everything I do, my shadow does too It shows what others may not be able to see Someone who I think is longing to be free My shadow follows be wherever I may go It shows the darker side of someone I may not want to know As my mind flows my shadow does the same It knows how to play every single game I don’t know how my shadow came to be But there’s an idea that just might help me Science says a shadow is a reflection from the sun As the light hits you it shows the world what you have done My shadow can also play the part as my best friend But even then it can still leave me when the day has come to an end. My shadow also has a way of telling a tall tale Even though its probably the only thing on this earth that’s not for sale I’ve always wondered what purpose a shadow really has in life As its main purpose brings creative minds together and imagination takes its flight My shadow has a way of sinking into my mind As it is always by my side I think of how my shadow would act if it were bought to life and made real Would it have my personality and feel exactly how I feel Would it still follow me where ever I may go? Or would it turn into somebody I barely know? Would we be friends and live together as one Or would we separate and would it stop copying everything I’ve done Would it have my voice, speak the way I do Or will I be the only one who could see it and not you If there was a way to bring my shadow out into this world I still wonder would I be the very same girl As simple as my shadow may be I still believe it has a deeper meaning…..someone longing to be free
