Shadows

Can be as big as mountains–

Can be as wet as regret–

And painful as losing life.

But look deeper and they

Are thin as paper–

Thin as a whim.

Shadows control the world

And people run from what

They do not understand.

Who could understand something which is

Really emptiness–

Who could understand

That which is really

Nothing?
