The Shadow of Someone Else

I wonder who I am
Where I’m going
What I’m meant to be

I wonder at my future
And if I’ll ever break free?

I wonder at my shadow
Does it live a better life?
Or does it struggle on too

I wonder at all my paths
I’ve failed to set foot upon

Who am I really?
Will I ever be more than a dream?
Am I the shadow of someone else

A shadow that is but a dream
Never heard, barely seen
