hanging by a thread

a spider has the skills to weave

a thread so very fine
and though it looks quite fragile
it contains a strength, divine
.
so that dangling little spider
doesn't feel an ounce of dread
no reason for concern
when they are hanging by a thread
.
alas, we are not spiders
and at times when we must cope
we find we're hanging by a thread
with just a shred of hope
.
but if you have a friend that's true
there's no cause for alarm
for stronger than a cable
is that friend's extended arm
.
at times we do not notice
that the threat of danger lies
but friends can point that out to you
and make you realize
.
we've heard the tale of damocles
a sword above his head
and all that kept him safe
was just a tiny little thread
.
so take a tip from spiders
weave a web of many friends
be part of a vast network
for on this, your life depends
