The trick is to recall
That what harms one affects us all.
In joy, we will gather;
Yet when life breaks down we scatter.
For reasons yet unknown,
We feel we must suffer alone.
Pain, though, truly binds us;
Whoever we are, it finds us.
I write to remind us
To not let our own grief blind us.
Sometimes Life will grind us…
That’s why God has intertwined us.
