The sacredness of the collective

The sacredness of the collective

Together
Needing each other,
Concepts that challenge
Our current narrative
Of ruddy singletons
Who need no assistance.

Yet
Our need for each other:
Desperate. Alone, truly
Alone, we die. The greatest leader,
Without others accomplishes
Nothing.

Collectives
Thrive on interdependence,
When one thrives, so do all.
We tunnel into and through
Ourselves, escaping into each
Other.

Carl Setzer
