A Tale Of Two Worlds - Poem by Uche Nwanze

What happens in your world is not what happens in mine. Looks oftentimes adorn herself in an apparel of deception.
Bruised but not crushed.
Broken but not shattered.
Down but not out.
Hurt but not weak.
Humble but not stupid.
Pierced but not wounded.
Ignorant but not clueless.
Injured but not defeated.
Disturbed but not troubled.
Afraid but not cowardly.
Imperfect but not incomplete.
Old but not worn out.
Separated but not apart.
Taciturn but not speechless.
Naive but not foolish.
Penniless but not broke.
Indifferent but not heartless.
Insensitive but not prejudiced.
Haunted but not wanted.
Noxious but not lethal.
Flawless but not harmless.
Cashless but not helpless.
Innocent but not blameless.
Acquitted but not guiltless.
Greedy but not selfish.
Angry but not hungry.
Tempted but not fallen.
Bitter but not tasteless.
Difficult but not impossible.
Disappointed but not resigned.
Poor but not defenceless.
Lost but not hopeless.
Disgraced but not embarrassed.
Reluctant but not impatient.
Condemned but not guilty.
We live in different worlds.
What happens in your world is not what happens in mine.
Looks oftentimes adorn herself in an apparel of deception.
