When do we know what we really want,
Not only what doesn't work for me?
The most daunting thing in life
Is to be completely free.

To act as if we're islands,
Who have no responsibility
To anyone but ourselves,
To be what we want to be.

Who would care what we do,
Whether we fail or succeed?
Who would be there for us
When we have a need?

It is important to choose a family
Of those who share our goals;
This is what is meant by
The communion of our souls.

  1. And thus the church is born! And the sewing circle; and the PTA; and the Lion's Club; because we need others. Love the way you handle words.
