One and the Same©

By Felina Silver Robinson

We try to close our eyes to the things that case us pain

We run, we hide

We buy gifts, we send gifts

We text, we call, we send letters

So we don’t have to look into each others eyes

Afraid to disappoint

Afraid to let each other down

We say we understand when we don’t even listen

We don’t remember what we said we knew

We look in the mirror and realize we’re no different from day-to-day

We’re no different than anyone else who looks in the mirror

We all see the same thing because we are all the same inside
