Two Worlds

 

How is that you have and I don’t have?
That you can and I can’t?
 
How is that you will and won’t?
That you shall and I shall not?
 
How is that you have and I don’t have?
That you receive, and yet I don’t?
 
How is that you laugh and I cry?
That you eat and I starve?
 
How is that you are and I’m not?
That you live and yet I die?
 
How is that our worlds are so different,
and yet are so close?
