Status: Finished  |  Genre: Other  |  House: Booksie Classic

entwining tightly into a a single mass
so dense that light can barely pass

their strength defies all resistance
merely by their coexistence

A free strand, loose in the wind 
Has no structure or discipline

Free to move about in any direction
Not tethered by any connection 

Just adrift and free
Left alone to just be

But what kind of strength 
Is built in solitude at length

Can we really withstand
The forces that try to disband 

The dreams we built on our solo flight
When we had no measure of wrong or right

Does a single thread bear the strength
Or endurance to holdout at length

Against the attacks from enemies so dark 
Their only intent is to rip you apart  

A single thread can be free, 
But creating a strand is the key

To generating a strong defense
Against all those who hate the threads existence 

Twisting and molding together 
Growing closer with each looped tether

Entwining tightly into a a single mass 
So dense that light can barely pass 

Their strength defies all resistance 
Merely by their coexistence 

But each thread is not lost to the other 
They independently nestle next to one another 

In a display of strength, trust, and choice 
Their message is conveyed to the world without a voice 

We stand together 
And we will wether 

Against the fear sourced in your heart 
that tries unsuccessfully to tear us apart.
