Shadows Without and Within

A poem

As our awareness first arose
They were present
Companions to walk ahead of us
Friendly guides preparing the way
Playmates with whom
We could create magical animals
And people of our own design
Or engage in games of chase
In which they seem to tease and laugh at us
As they never could be tagged
