my shadow

September 24, 2010
what is my shadow?
my conscience? my death?
or is it none of these things?
is it the deep depths of my black heart?
following me. following me?
or is it not even that?
is it nothing, made up by the mind?
to amuse, and abuse?
no you may say,
for you are like me,
for us only we, believe,
that the shadow is but darkness,
for all to see.
and you will be you,
and i will be me.
and others ask why we must even be.
but to fit out,
is that bad?
for that we may never know,
like we may never know,
what is my shadow?

I really like this poem. Most don't like how t doesn't have punctuation, but there is a world famous poet that was famous for his poems and how he doesn't capitalize any letters. But forget them if they comment you are very original. Love the poem!
