IF ONLY ONE OF US

DSC05195

If only one of us is simple,
We are too imaginative to handle this situation.
If only one of us is humble,
We are too proud to the point of miserable isolation.
If only one of us is ordinary,
We are too interesting not to get unwanted attraction.
If only one of us is lucid,
We are too cryptic to even start a conversation.
If only one of us is insensitive,
We are too fragile to manage this infinitesimal frustration.
If only one of us is vapid,
We are too versed that we often get lost in translation.
If only one of us is confident.
We are too insecure to even fight off this intimidation.
If only one of us is brave,
We are too weak even for an amicable confrontation.
If only one of us is modest,
We are too vain to accept our imperfection.
If only one of us is selfless,
We are egotistical fools held captive of this misinterpretation.
If only we are not born for each other,
We could have worked harder, with less expectation.
But we’re born for each other,
So let’s bury ourselves and get into action
Before somebody else steals our attention
