The Original One

 

Two twins were born.

Two males born together.

Two exact copies of one another.

You can’t tell the difference.

One named Paul.

The other named Pete.

Paul and Pete are happy together.

But Pete doesn’t really like his name.

He wishes that he could be named Paul.

How he wishes for it.

One day, Paul has an accident.

Pete is the only one who was there when it happened.

On his way back, crying to tell his mother, he stops and thinks:

“….Is this my wish come true?”

Two twins were born.

Two males born together.

Two exact copies of one another.

You can’t tell the difference.

One named Paul.

The other named Pete.

Pete had an accident one day.

And Paul was the only one who was there when it happened.

On his way back, crying to tell his mother, he stops and realizes:

“…He’s dead.”

Now Pete is dead.

Paul is still alive.

Thank god he is.

But the question here is…

Is he really Paul?

Or was Paul the one who died?

Two twins were born.

Two males born together.

Two exact copies of one another.

You can’t tell the difference.

One named Paul.

The other named Pete.

One day Paul died.

And Pete took his place.

So in the end,

Who was the one who died?

Who is the original one?
