Summary: A twin speaks.
Disclaimer: Tolkien's, not mine.
On the surface we are the same. Mirror images. Identical of face - but not identical of heart.
I know others find it hard to comprehend. They are blind, cannot see beyond their eyes, cannot see that below the surface lie different hearts, different souls, different minds.
Yet I find it difficult myself. I know your thoughts, even when I do not share them; I feel your pain, even when it is not my own. I love you, my brother, and could never bear to be parted from you; yet I yearn to be myself.
Below the surface, we are different.
