Needing to Connect
When will people realize
our need to connect to each other?
Many emotions are common to all of us
Even when we believe in something
or do not believe at all
we somehow cross paths.
We all have fears;
no matter how diverse they be,
a trembling sensation overwhelms us all
when life ceases to be.
Our narratives of joy,
love, anguish, and even hate unite us.
Pain and suffering in one way or another
visit us at some point.
But most common is our
need to breathe,
especially within our life’s context today.
Let’s face it,
we are united whether we like it or not.
