Looking from the inside out

No matter how hard we might try, we can never really see the world from the perspective of someone else.

All of us see the world by looking from the inside out.

a gemini poem

before I was born
i used to play with my twin
together we’d wander through mirrors
seeing ourselves as others saw us
comfortable
in knowing that we shared the view
then birth separated us
left to wander alone seeking a positive reflection
