One

Do you think I could drop me for a moment, and just be here alone?
Not while you’re here.
While you’re here, I exist.
Without you, there cannot exist a me to perceive you there.
It’s a balance that forms our shared reality.
You can ignore me, you can pretend I’m not there,
but even that recognizes me through my absence.
I’m still there, because without me, you don’t exist.
You and I are one, dependent upon each other to define our being.
We are many.
We perceive the world through many eyes.
We can divide ourselves in many ways,
but in the end,
we are one.
