Enemies

Come forward,

You,

Whom I dread;

/

Look into my eyes

At the

Reflection of yourself;

/

Come closer,

And watch your reflection

Become my eyes;

/

Let your anger and hatred

Embrace me;

Strangle me with your spite;

/

But then,

When my breathing

Grows weaker,

/

Remember that,

As I fall,

My eyes closing meekly,

/

You, too,

Can no longer

Stand;

/

You are

No enemy

To me

/

I am

Not alien

To you
