Constant struggle
to find
some meaning

except when you don't
you are strong

we are identical
the reflection tells me so
so why
are we so different?
why can't we exist at the same time
why are we not one
how can we be so different

So old to feel so young;
So many feelings conflicting;
So many fears and disappointments.

Too young to feel so old;
Too old to feel so young;
Too many feelings conflicting;
Too many tears in such a short
span of time—

How young is too young?
How old is too old?
How many fears and disappointments are possible
in a lifetime?
How many tears does an answer
