Knowledge Spun Into Wisdom - Poem by Michele C. Messina Long

I am a contented fiber,
Something finer than my Self
Interwoven to create a reality
Enduring through time with the strength of steel.

In isolation I would unravel
And diminish all too quickly
To become defective,
Then discarded as waste.

Joined in Oneness
I can actualize strength beyond my limits.
That strength that moves mountains
And rescues the distressed.

I was not put here to stand alone
Yet to intermix with All.
Those insisting on standing alone are doomed,
Never to know or reach their true design.
