Buddhism is so beautiful but it is just a reflection. Life is the beautiful thing and Buddhism helps me see that beauty. Samsara is the cycle of rebirths and suffering. Total enlightenment only comes when that cycle is broken. As Big Daddy Kane said, Pimpin' aint easy.

Shadows have always existed

Stretched as cast long over the ground

Now the shadows are what I see

Taught a simple thing by Buddha

Freedom simply step from the shadow


The shadow holds the suffering

Moved to the side it is cast to the side

Looking to the shadow my open hand reaches

Opened it is more than a hand

A path can be found traced upon it

Leave the shadow and stand with me


My only wish now, extending both hands

Shadows have always existed

So have we

Places walked were all in shadows

So many times, so many lives, again shadows

It ends as this wish starts
