It Simply Isn’t the Same

You cannot be here and there at the same time.
You can transmit an image or a representation.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot be awake and asleep at the same time.
You can sleep with your eyes open.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot speak the truth and be deceitful at the same time.
You can avoid the truth or manipulate it.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot be open and hide at the same time.
You can avert attention and recognition.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot be a bully and a lover at the same time.
You can use your power to control and seduce.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot feed another’s addiction and claim to truly love them.
You can use their addiction to keep them close to you.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot hold someone a prisoner and claim to only want what’s best for them.
You can think your protection and your fears as expressions of love.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot walk by faith and force your will on others.
You can use your power to manipulate and intimidate.
It simply isn’t the same.

You cannot pursue righteousness and embrace unrighteousness.
You can live one way in public and the other in private.
It simply isn’t the same.
