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.
