Shadow Works

By James Johnston
VERSE
As I consult and seek the universe
Reflections of when times were worse
There’s no space between here and then:
A soul traveler steeped in my Zen

In my best life I’m Marie Antoinette
My pageantry blew up the internet
Despite French wealth and royal majesty
In the end, I’m but a comic tragedy

Sometimes I feel foreboding dread:
Joked a one off from my busy head
Made a cake mistake, one little gaffe
Now I’m not the queen I once was by half

CHORUS
I just do my shadow works
My shadows work through me
In the backside of the mirror lurks
A better side of me

VERSE
My inner roar born from Joan of Arc
Courage and faith brought down an English monarch
Caught between hellfire and holy water
I only ever wanted to be God’s loving daughter

Cleopatra ruled with my open heart
Charismatic and schooled, I was state-of-the-art
An Egyptian passage appeared on my top shelf:
“To conquer the world, one must conquer oneself”

CHORUS
I just do my shadow works
My shadows work through me
In the backside of the mirror lurks
A better side of me

BRIDGE
One, two, three, four: let’s rehearse
One hundred more lives to reverse
Cocooned safely in my quietude
My dark Sacred Space of Solitude
Their irony always follows me
I weave them into my tapestry….

CHORUS/OUTRO
I just do my shadow works
My shadows work through me
In the backside of the mirror lurks
A better side of me
Realigned reality
The final taste of free(dom)
