Imagine all of humanity 
as a single tree
Majestic and so strong
Standing there amidst furies
Now imagine splintering it
piece by piece by
piece so many pieces
of what was once
whole unified in tact
with one sole purpose
growth towards the sun
But now each splinter
having its own identity
and pervasive selfish purpose
has all but forgotten
what strength it had
when bound to others
choosing its weakness instead
God gave us similarities
We ripped us apart
