Doppelganger- Poem

Fibonacci poetry: Syllables follow the Fibonacci sequence

Men

crave

a clone,

dead ringer,

replica to quench

darkness within them, do good deeds

The flaw is searching for a doppelganger outside

When the counterpart to our demon, lurks in the crevice of our own sweet sanguine soul

 

My interpretation: We crave a greater version of ourselves, minus the flaws, a double who is closer to being perfect. We look for external agents such as circumstance or other people to draw out this desirable alter ego, while overlooking the fact that the onus is upon us to stimulate our own inner transformation.
