We were born together.
Our lives were nothing more than a minute apart,
but our minds couldn’t be farther.
When I saw a looking glass.
He saw furniture.
When I saw a white rabbit.
He saw an animal.
When I saw a girl in a blue dress.
He saw a child.
When I saw a land of color.
He saw nothing.
We are one in the same.
Yet, he is the reflection that stands on the opposite side of the tracks,
Forever mumbling unspoken words.
