The Integrity To Be Friends - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

put two stones
as close to each other
as you can.

put two men too,
close to each other.

what's the similarity?

if both do not have
the integrity to
really understand
each other for the
common good,
two million years
from now they
would still be as good
as - mere stones.
