If I were you and you were me,

How simple life would be.

Your life is charmed,

From what I can see.


Social media tells me so.

and so I believe.

That only I must have shadows,

in the corners of my soul.


But when I meet you face to face.

Look into your eyes and see your heart.

I see the shadows lurking there.

You are me and I am you.


The demons of media playing tricks on my mind.

Challenging my identity at every turn.

But I am me, and you are you.

Both with a perfectly imperfect life.
