Every time I saw the upside-down boy,

Standing in the water,

I would laugh my heart out

At his near-perfect attempt at being me


Maybe,just maybe,I shouldn’t laugh,

For,perhaps in another world,time,or town,

He is right side up

And I, upside-down


These thoughts continued till one day I realized that

He is just a reflection of myself

For every time I stared,what stared back at me

Was one who lacked inner peace

What more could be a more perfect image of me?
