empath vs ego

the other side to the story

flipped for you to see

but with backward lettering

needs a mirror to interpret

looking back in reflection

you will learn your tale

as cryptic as theirs

but it was you that bothered

to see that reflection

holding the glass outward

to decipher their struggle

even when

they had the looking glass

facing their own face

for self reflection

self pity

self examination

drowning in the sea of me
