Your shadows sometimes have the power

to duplicate and drown you in a forest

of potential yous

of conflicting desires

What to do, what to do

you worry

Where to go, where to go

which one is real, the real me

And I tell you

you are all your shadows assembled together

and at the same time you are none of these smoky shapes

which symbolize distorted, diffracted desires

that come from a deeper place within yourself

You must look for this secret room

from which all these shapes stem

for there you shall find the glowing truth as it is

before the fog of your fears diffracts it

into a dozen different figures
