Working Together


a piece
small possible selective
though still important
for within
its contribution
everything seems
unconnected, mismatched
missing these
pivotal requirements
nothing is left
or forgotten
holding onto
love felt
reminds us
that no one
is perfect
though all
are important
for this
is not a game
relationships are
not pawns
we are
a community
that depends
on each other
to treat everybody
with empathy
respect and
utmost compassion
