Connections

Connections are fragile.
The nails could rust
The rope could snap
The cord could come unplugged.

No matter how far we stretch
To reach the thing
That holds us together,
It always seems too far to grasp.

One side begins to slip away
As the other stops holding on.

Gravity pulls downward
As the weight of one another
Becomes too heavy to bear.

When one side finally falls,
The other side stands tall.

Once that nail
That rope
That cord
Is replaced,
The fallen are forgotten
And the survivors move on.
