Why do we spend so much time
And energy
Seeking friends and companions?
What drives and nudges us on,
Through confusion
To take risks and keep trying?

Is it not that we are built
For connection
So that we are not alone?
Isn’t it an expression
Of creation
To be unique, yet alike?

To love ourselves and neighbors;
Each belonging
And embracing the other
Welcoming friends and strangers:
With open arms
Comprise life’s greatest blessings.
