I am the fury and I am the calm. I am the beast and I am the dove. I am the hunter and I am the hunted. I am the lost and I am the found. I am only one, and one is a lonely part of nothing.

ONE IS A LONELY PART OF NOTHING

By Al Garcia

I am the fury and I am the calm.  I am the beast and I am the dove.  I am the hunter and I am the hunted.  I am the lost and I am the found.  I am only one, and one is a lonely part of nothing.

Together we are everything.  We are the light that shines at the darkest hour.  We are the voice that soothes and pacifies.  We are the arms that hold a defeated and broken soul.  We are the hope and promise never lost.

I feel complete and fulfilled when it is we and not only me.  I sense a strength and potency that I alone did not possess.  I can believe in a greater purpose than I alone could have conceived or perceived, only because of we, and not just because of me.

Only when I understood that I was not expected to walk and carry the burdens of my life alone, did I see the darkness begin to fade.  Only then, did I begin to hear the voices cheering me on.  Only then, did I see the outstretched hands and arms holding me up and pushing ne toward the finish line.  And it was then I knew the difference between me, you and us – because together we are everything and we can do anything.

One is a lonely part of nothing.  That must be why wiser men then me once began their covenant by uttering the words “WE THE PEOPLE.”  That was way before I realized what they already knew, that we are better, stronger and wiser, when we stand together, then when we stand alone -- because one is a lonely part of nothing.
