My Shadow and Me: A Poem
Let me introduce to you my shadow
it is handling all of my worldly affairs
with my every view and my pet credo
as it genuinely understands and cares.
My shadow surely has a likeness of me
but no one can touch me by stepping on it
neither affect me or hurt me, whatever may be
as I won't be the one to resent it, nor to condone it.
Having found my true self through my meditations
in my sinking deep into the essence of my being
not being involved with my shadow's relations
just a pure consciousness impartially seeing.
So, we both live peacefully within same space
I just allow it to be, and in return it lets me be
and it can never wipe the smile off my face
its imperfection being no part of this me.
Over many years he turned into my imitation
just as if he didn't have any other choice
so even with all of those limitations
he often speaks with my voice.
