It prompted me to ponder.
If one day you woke to find,
That your shadow was not as dark as it should be,
Would you care?
Would you task to find out why?
And if you did decide to question it,
What would you ask first?
Would you question the light that shines on you or would you look into yourself?
Would it be that the light was so bright,
That some of it passes right through,
Such that your shadow became dilute?
Or would it be that the light became dimmer,
Less than what it should be?
Or in questioning yourself,
Would it be,
That the darkness within grew larger,
And larger until,
The light that falls on you would be diminished?
Leaving your shadow less and less of what it should be.
