Some folks are wise and some are otherwise. I guess we know which one you are.


My shadow is tied to me,
I’ve tried to get rid of it,
As you can see,
I hacked up my body,
And tried to cut it off,
All I can show are tears of salt.


The author's comments:
This is a poem based off a very sad story I heard of a mentally ill person who tried to cut of his shadow and ended up killing himself.
