Do you ever wonder what life would be
If everything you knew was opposite?
I ponder the mirror universe with story
I put my thoughts in poetical verse
Who would my opposite be?
Could I even tell if I saw her?
Is she more serious or am I?
Has she done more than I?
I can’t imagine a version with a life
Different than mine, not that I’m perfect
I just don’t want the other me to suffer
Or maybe they have it better than I do
Why would I want to wish to be there?
What decisions would I make
If my life had gone another way
Would I voice by thoughts
As a vocalist in a rock band
Would I be a reporter on TV
Would I be a famous influencer
Would I go the wrong path
A choose a rebel life
Wandering the world
With no care for anyone
Or would I be a scientist
Saving someone’s life
I don’t want to ponder any longer
As I am who I am
The writer, the nerd,
Who cares more than she should
Some might still see me as a villain
As she lets go what doesn’t fit
Others as a hero who supports
All I try to do is my best
Being just who I am
In this universe
