All for some and some for all?
And from some, can we be all?

The self gives way to the witching hour,
When strength in numbers start to cower.
On the floor, quenched with Dutch courage,
Panicking quick to explain our scourges.

All for one and one for all?
And from one, can I be all?

Being a human, in lateral sway,
Learning the universe at my own pace.
Being Robin Hood when a wrong needs right,
And given a heart that’s in love or contrite.

All for none and none for all?
And from none, can I be at all?

Serenity granted, accepting loss,
Accepting change, whatever its cost.
Emotions are weather, though for days it may pour,
We must live in seasons and follow the course.

All for none, but some for all.
And from one, I must be all.
