Together

A  NaPoWriMo poem I haven’t posted yet, day 18. Inspired by Ecclesiastes 4:12. 

Together

Story4

I know I am broken,

weak, wilting

I know that I struggle,

stumble, fall

 

But won’t you take my hand?

Won’t you let me try to help?

Alone, we are drowning,

But together—

Together we can soar

 

I know I am stained,

scarred, sinking

I am that I tremble,

cower, faint

 

But won’t you take my hand?

Won’t you let me try to help?

Alone, we are conquered,

But together—

Together we can overcome

 

A threefold chord is not easily broken,

He says,

Even if the chords themselves

Are thin

So twine yourself around me,

Join me,

Meld what little strength you have

With mine

And let us become a lifeline, pulling others

To safety

Because we are so strong

Together
