When I first learned about DNA

I felt special because I am the only me out there

There is no one else with my face.

Raised her hand curiously and asked about identical twins.

It was then my illusion was shattered like a mirror

I had begun to realize that identical twins have the same DNA.

It began to give me hives thinking about

I would no longer be special.

There wouldn’t just be one of me.

There would be two.
