"We Partake In The Blood And Soul Of This Glorious Sacrifice."

Our shadow is a mirror. Showing our accomplishments and our faults. Reminding us that we are nothing but an empty shell doing what we think is right. It is always there, always watching, coping and mocking us. It laughs at us, following our example. It causes us to do things that are better left un-said, un-told, and never mentioned. Our shadow is an influence written in blood. It writes messages on the wall as a note, telling us to give up, to stop trying, and to just quit. But as the sun turns, the fall of night destroys your shadow. It disappears and you no longer feel the strain on your back. But the sun turns back and our shadow comes back. Once again, showing our lives pass. Our shadow is nothing but a mirror… covered in blood.

I got the inspiration from my friend mentioning something about his shadow. I wasn't really paying attention until I heard him say 'shadow'. It caught my eye and that gave this wonderful work of art.

I think this was a really powerful piece. It was something that made me think and reflect. I'd suggest going through and trying to exchange some of the simpiler words for more obscure ones. It might make the piece even better.
