Inextricably interconnected indivisible by interdependence
Each as one, all as one, or all is none all is undone
That won as one can be done, one as one as one.

    Reminds me of a house of cards....stacking one after one, building a higher structure, stabilizing with the joined foundation, but if one, displaced, one, removed, the collapse inevitable...fantastic piece, my friend. (Report) Reply

    'Inextricably inter connected, indivisible by inter dependence', yet am one! Unique with a disticnt corporal frame and a distinct individuality, yet how interconnected ! ! Wonderful write with an arresting structure! (Report) Reply

    Nice structure and drive. Almost like a growning snowball effect in my mind... Words being loose at first, and finally tightening up into a fist, striking with a flurry of words at the end. (Report) Reply

    As billions, we are individual souls. And yet, we are one race of people [human race], so connected by our dependence upon one another, One needs the other in order to survive. Each is an individul. But all are a unit: no man is an island, no man stands alone] Each man is my brother. Each man is my friend. Very well presented. (Report) Reply

    Hello Danny... Great layout to produce the perfect thought patter... This reminds me of beads on an abacus, each one useless and pointless on their own but gain relevance by the beads sat next too. Never actually mould but all sit well beside each other..But every bead counts :) .Bravo Mr Poet :) (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
