JOURNEYS, PART 5; IN PARALLEL

What if we coexist

CONCURRENTLY,

incredibly?

What if we are dancing through this

DUALITY,

indelibly?

What if we are persons

in parallel,

APART?

What if our only

difference

was our start?

What if there were

CHOICES

in the past, that existed?

What if there were bonds

that held tight,

that RESISTED?

What if FREEDOM

of choice

had been an option?

What if it wasn’t

just the cold word

of ADOPTION?

What if there are two of me

living lives

in PARALLEL,

one born to rules

and the other

to RAISE SOME HELL.

    Hi Dami! I came back to see if there were any comments on this one but sadly not. It resonated strongly and I hoped to find some discussion. It seems quite strident with all the block capitals! Nigel and I saw my double once; we were walking through a square in Winchester UK years ago and a woman coming towards us was the spitting image of me. We both felt that very strongly at the time and checking with Nigel now he’s just as certain today that she was my double! Its a weird feeling!! If you’re willing to share some thoughts on this poem it’d be great 🙂
