I Have Lived Your Life.

I do not need to know your background,

your culture, your language, or your dreams.

I have suffered heart break and separation,

I have failed in academics, I have lost countless dollars.

I’ve climbed to mountaintops then lost my grip.

My life is a book filled with page after page of misguided rage,

A tale of young man seeking independence but knowing

he needs guidance.

We do not need to know each other’s culture or preferences.

I have lived your life. You have lived mine.

That is all I need to know,

to walk amongst tigers and serpents, saints and conmen,

in the dark of midnight or the glow of sunrise,

with not a weapon or bribe.
