On our walk through life, we chase our own shadows – of who we are, or once were. We always want to keep rising up and above our shadows. We try to reach the unreachable, think the unthinkable and in the long run we end up being distant from our true selves. Don’t you think so? Have you ever wonder how your shadow lures you? Did you ever look back to see your shadow following you? Have you ever wonder the darkness it conceals in itself? Shadow changes its shapes and sizes. Doesn’t it? It depends on where you stand in life, and what you stand for. Your essence to the world changes with you, and sometimes you even end up hiding yourself behind your own shadow. Doesn’t it bother you that your shadow can tell so much about you?
