Have you ever thought if we are?

If we exist?

Or are we just a visage

A movie on the screen of life

 

The shadow we cast is incorporeal

Try as we might

We may never see what it sees

Or even embrace it to our soul

 

The invisible life-force we breathe

Visible as chill wind

Like a rolling fog across a meadow

Silently, screaming in inevitable release.

 

Interaction with others an algorithm

A set course

The way a child plays a computer game

Full of pixel created puppeteer Sims

 

The only real way to tell if we exist

Lies in the land

The depressed footsteps in wet sand

Giving away our lives as real, with depth

 

The intangible meaning of a simple footfall

The only reality

The fact existence is ultimately knowledge

The knowledge that with substance there’s life
