Letter To A Known Stranger

When you look at me do you see what you want to see or do you truly see me. I know the answer. I know it by the way you keep underestimating me. I know it because of the way you keep making assumptions about me. How can you see me when you have never ask about the things that matters. You never dig deep but are content to be superficial.

 

You pretend to know me because it makes you feel better about yourself. You make up things to fill out the gaps of things you don't know. I know you care. Or maybe you convinced yourself that you needed to care. Is easier for you to convince yourself of things about me that are simply incorrect. It is because that would mean you would have to share things about yourself.

 

You forget that I have been on this planet for a very long time. You have not had a fraction of the life experiences that I have had. Normally it wouldn't matter, but you keep underestimating me. I have been observing your actions vs your words and I am not impressed. I prefer the simple live that I have chosen for myself than the shallow one you enjoy.

 

How can you know me when I do not know you?
