Differences

Dwelling on the differences inspires more differences
Indifferent I try to be amongst the urge to waste more time on them
Some unknown energy turns into this formidable enemy
I become smaller, but my mind expands rapaciously
A distorted image; not the fault of the mirror
Misshapen reality has carved me out from my being
This is not me, but I am living comfortably with my antithetical nature
There is a compulsion, an inglorious surrender
My differences are not mine, but they are like deep contours in the mind
Not the usual darkness, but there seems to be a greater conspiracy
