Many people live in the world
full and strong,
Some ride together,
some ride alone.
I wish you would let me,
go my own way,
without you lurking,
behind the trees.
One shadow more is too much for me,
the burden is to hard to carry.
Just let me imagine and think freely,
without you taking and copying me.

The author's comments:
My sister-like friend and I emulate one-another without trying. Naturally, we have the same interests. When I started to write poetry, she did. When I started to play tennis and the piano, she did. When I started a book, she did. She was my shadow, my emulating friend.
