I don't need to ask.
The universe sends me mirrors.
Like a riddle, I have to unravel
the meaning to be clear
It says, 'Look, you aren't alone.
You don't have to face this on your own.
I am here. I am holding you.'
Or, is it just me?
Am I being reflected back to me?
Am I creating this fantasy?
Am I searching for those parts of me?
Or, alternatively, am I recognizing shared humanity?
Am I really not so alone?
No, I don't think so.
Whatever the truth may be.
