Chased by His Shadows

You see him running,
Fleeing away like deer for death's claws,
But you don't see him chased.

Look again, my son
Closely; this time my son,
Like a loyal dog, that is his shadow behind him.

It attempts to screen that individual who may the society think he is been punished unfairly by life. that his troubles are unduly bagged on him. But the old wise poet tells his son to take a closer look at the man instead of lavishing his energy on pitting the man. Behind the running character is also his chasing shadow. our life deeds stick to us like shadows. We can't run away from who we are unless we begin to change that which we fear should hunt us. The evil or good men do live with them. not all men running and crying for help are innocent.
