Chasing Shadows

There’s a shadow that resembles the beauty of life,

And oh what a magnificent display,

So like a dog chasing its tail,

I run after it,

My glazed over eyes focused on the prize.

It’s exhilarating,

Like the promise of a candy shop visit.

Only it never materialises.

It’s just a shadow.

Give me the real thing

 

James 1:17

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
