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 me where ever I go. 
It shows the darker side of someone I may not want to know.
As my mind flows, my shadow thinks 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 may just 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. 
Your shadow can also play the part as your greatest friend.
Then again, even your own shadow can leave you
Once the day has come to an end
Shadows even have a way of telling a tall tale. 
However its probably the only thing on this earth that's not for sale. 
You will always have your shadow, no matter where you are. 
But sometimes you may get lonely, since your shadow can only take you so far. I've always wondered what purpose a shadow really has in life. 
As it brings creative minds together and imagination takes its flight. 

My shadow sometimes has a way of sinking into my mind.
Since it is somewhat 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 go? 
Or will 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 that I have done?
Would it have my voice, speak the way I do? 
Or would it not, even be noticeable and only I can see it...not even you?  

If there was a way to bring my shadow out and into this world 
I still wonder if we would be the very same girl. 
As simple as my shadow can be. 
I still believe it has a deeper meaning....someone who is longing to be free.
