Reading Minds

Reading Minds

A Poem by Hendro Smit

Don't we all wish we could read minds ?

Don't we all wish we could read minds ?
just to know if someone else lives a life
as real as our own ?

Do they think the way I do
Do they feel the way I do
Do they dream and hope
hurt the way I do ?

What if we all live real lives ?
What if every person is a person
What if every monster and every saint
is just a person ?
The scariest thought of all is what if ?
What if we can read minds but no one is alive
what if we really are alone
the only mind to read our own.

I wrote this in about half an hour so it isn't awfully well thought out but it is a question that's always been in the back of my head, i hope you enjoy it
