About The Shadows - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

if you want to get rid of your shadow
then kill light

do not reflect upon anything
do not move

do not be yourself in substance
be not a body but be a soul

there is no shadow
when the past is murdered

sometimes i ask
why do you fear or hate the very part of yourself?

when you pierce it with your pointing finger
there is no pain there is nothing that is pierced

live in the dark where shadows are no more.
