How can you be sure
The shadow that follows you
Is your own
If it has no face
And, no other distinguishing features
Which prove
It is yours

For arguments sake
Let’s say you know the shadow
Is yours
Can you touch the shadow?
You may touch the ground
That it is projected on
But, have you touched the shadow?
Certainly not
It is impossible to touch a shadow
Or, is it?

What if
In your sleep
You dream of your shadow
You see its face
You touch it with your hand
And, when you wake
You remember its features
And, what it felt like in your hand
Have you touched your shadow, then?

When we look with our
Eyes
We see only a shadow
Of our True substance
A shadow we can never touch
But, there is another way to look
