Shadows

Shadows only show when the sun shines.
I wonder if we’re living in shadows
when the sun isn’t on.

Which is reality
and which the shadow life.

Shadows are usually bigger than life,
flatter,
distorted,
often scary.

Reality can be scary too
but shadows are less defined.

Depression is a shadow,
that sometimes overshadows reality
or threatens to.

Strange concept that.
One can choose to see the shadows
but not live in the shadow.

I think I’m learning which
is which.
