There exists a prodigy,

and one walking its shadow,

longing to live its dream.

Which life is best to live?

The prodigy or its shadow?

The shadow learns humility.

The shadow learns by doing.

The shadow has leaned to live.

The prodigy just is.

The prodigy is the inventor and,

the shadow is its recipient.

Without the shadow,

there is no need of a prodigy.

Without the prodigy,

the shadow receives,

the light.
