Stranger

We meet no one
Stranger than ourselves

Unique & complex
To our own eyes

We see beyond
What the world sees

Beyond the simple
Dancer & writer
Talker & fighter
Rider & teacher
Winner & loser

Inside the maze of memories
Remembrances of a game
Played with a brother
Long since seen

Knees skinned & bloody
Due to a wildly bucking bike
Now mere scar tissue that none comprehend

Sadness at the distance
That grows among family
Not understanding why

One & the same
Dancer & writer
Talker & fighter
Rider & teacher
Winner & loser
None are the same.
