A poem exploring the power of coming together.
Two rivers, separated by distance —
Flowing at different paces,
Facing different barriers within the beds of their waters.
You share the same properties,
Same chemical makeup.
However, you travel down different paths.
Paths forged by the Earth
That create different experiences,
Perspectives, and realizations
Along your journey.
Even so, you carry the same vision —
To Reach the ocean.
You are not sure why at first,
But something within you knows clarity
Can be found in the coming together of
Excited, these two rivers rush
At the sight of the bay.
Here the two rivers converge into one sea
In its watery depths,
You find it is a place for innovation to be
Through the exploration of this vast pool of
Creativity your minds find a current,
A reason to serve,
A sense of clarity.
You ride this current of collective vision to
Its end where your efforts result in the
Birth of a beautiful service to the world.
However, it does not end here, no no.
Through more exploration of joint ventures
You find current after current,
Creation after creation.
A never-ending cycle of finding and
Expressing your truth.
All the while,
More rivers join in from all over.
Generating a collective group of waters that
Are free to live as one body, creating life to
Share with the rest of the world —
