The Human Chain - Poem by Patricia Grantham

We were all born not just merely to exist
But to be an important link to humanity
Some obstacles in life can be quite difficult
There are links in the chain that are weak

When the chain is broken somethings are lost
The substance of the chain is lacking in power
Then the enemy finds a way to get a foothold
To survive this we must all forever hold fast

For in much unity there is great strength
The human condition will always be with us
It is only sustained by our perseverance
Our universe is powerful yet is still fragile

We all have a part to play in it for its survival
A chain that is unbroken is a very formidable foe
Everyone of us are unique in each and every way
Still becoming united as one will happen one day

Great things will happen when all can come together
Will bind us tightly when we began to love one another
Strong links are vital in the creation of this human chain
Linking back together will also help strengthen us again

    A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. We must strengthen every link for survival. Beautiful poem calling for strengthening human bond. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    A must needed plea for unity done with grace, dignity and eternal hope. Perhaps it may yet
    happen. Very well done (Report) Reply

    We are not here to foster our own individual existence alone, but to be a link in the great chain of humanity! Each strong link makes the chain stronger! We have to hold fast to one another, so that no enemy will infiltrate into our territory. As you affirm, in unity lies all the strength! ! Great write! !

    Wish you a Great New Year of all possible joy and peace! ! (Report) Reply

    ......i see there are two teams playing this game and i choose to be on the good team....but can both teams unite and become one...i actually think it will never happen...the dark forces will never join with the forces of light...but if we keep wishing it could happen...sometimes wishes do come true...i know this for a fact...this is a wonderful poem you have penned..
