|Are we really who we think we are? Or perhaps we are only shadows on our true selves.|
Shadows Casting oblong shapes Against monotonous floors, Shade perceptions of ourselves, But where is self? The warmth of light Begs brain-washed eyes To pry from sterile television sets. We no longer dwell in caves But in trailer parks and shopping malls Glued to MTV and the NFL Blind to moral responsibility. Our cheaks turned so far That to turn back would snap our spineless necks Unable to see the true form that casts our Shadows. Tweet
