TOGETHER

Like the pebbles of a sandy shore
many hued and multi-textured
all unique and yet so alike.
Some shine and glitter in the warmth of the sun
while others brood in the deeper shade.
Singly, lost and alone
at the mercy of the crashing waves
at the mercy of the gathering storms.
But together, a force to reckon.
Together, a formidable shield
not easily broken, inexhaustible.
For every one lost, another takes his place.
Together we can take on the murky waters.
Together we can push it bit by bit, wave by wave
over the horizon and out of sight
until all are uncovered
until all are glittering in the sun
all unique and yet so alike.
