As one, we survive…we thrive
By Julie Dickinson

There is no sense in separation.
No need of hesitation in moment.

We are one, born of similar connection.
Of social familial and
bright-light birth.

Why seek to separate?
Push us apart, chasm created.
Hierarchical value system.

You are no less valuable than me
little chick, calf, pig, whale, turkey fox…
baby, old lady, ramshackle busker.

We are all born of this Earth and stardust.
The planet embedded in our very souls,
our chromosomes.

A new narrative of potential
A different way of being…
ripples, as we draw nearer to one another.

For all species.

As one, we survive…we thrive.
