I came across naive pebbles on a crowded beach

of different shapes, colours and forms

Frequently moved by the ebb and flow of the tide

yet all packed neatly together as if for comfort


Each individual pebble a part of a sea of stones and rocks

no two alike but in a common unison of sorts

I picked one at random, amazed at its uniqueness

no two were allike, distinct and individual


The ocean enveloped and shaped them

as does the world shape us also

To be unique yet bonded in a common humanity

accepting of all differences and rejecting of none.


How else can we survive?
