The illusions that delude us
The intangible that send us chasing the wind
The dreams of others we pursue
Without the understanding nor reasoning to see them through
Seeking to relate with the shadow
Yet ignoring the person
Which then is more real to you?
The shadow will fade yet the person remains
Why disguise yourself like another in the pursuit to belong
Why replicate that which is already there
Don’t you know people value the original rather than the counterfeit?
Why then must one trade the original for a counterfeit?
Distinguish the shadow from the person
Appreciate the value that lies before you
The creation cannot be greater than the creator
Make your acquaintance with the creator and appreciate the creation
Stop chasing shadows
