Longing for Together


Longing for Together


Every encounter

Every conversation

We are searching for a common thread.


To connect us to each other.

We long to find community,

Loneliness, it scares us.

It’s vulnerable to be alone,

To be among others

In openness and honesty

Is to be vulnerable with witnesses.

But, when we grasp

Find a hold

And grab it

We are no longer alone.

There is always strength in numbers

Without knowing it

We take courage knowing

We aren’t the only ones to ever cry.

Our fear and pain lessen in the company

Of others.

Joy abounds when shared among a group.

We long to find togetherness

In everything we do.
