You and me, we are brothers.
That’s why I could easily call you my enemy. Someone who sets traps and invents obstacles in order to get me off track and make me lose my direction. You know a lot about me. More than others. But I have decided not to see you as my enemy, but as a mystery, like I see myself. That’s the more challenging way. But I feel, that digging deep enough and going far enough will make me find something familiar in you. Something I trust. Something that will bring me joy. I care for you.
