Mirror

I love you more than life itself,
but I am not like you.

You are selfless and careless and ignorant,
I am selfish and meticulous and conscious.

You obey and accept what life brings your way,
I refuse to settle for what I am given.

You sacrifice your dignity for another’s acceptance,
I use others’ indignities to fuel my ambitions.

There is no reason to fight and win for you,
I fight to win every time.

You do not understand why wars are fought,
I can justify the greatest battles in history.

Funny how we are so similar and different,
how we can be so close and so far apart.

I love you more than life itself,
but I am not like you.
