Unraveled

Society unravels before our eyes under the pressure of growing dissension and division. The integrity of the social fabric weakens as individual fibers become degraded. We (the fibers) feel displaced from normal, leaving us shaken, disoriented, internally coming apart at the seams.

We must try not to project our own inner unraveling outward. We each need to work at shaking off what divides us and move beyond this. When we recognize the strength within us, and that we also need each other, we will settle for nothing less than a great society, and we will work together to build it.


Fabrications

Society used to
be built on
the character of
the people who
wove the fabric.

Integrity,
Honesty,
Hard Work,
Relationships,
and Vision.

These were the
vital strands
woven into the
warp and weft of
our world.

Now society is
fabricated on
voices in thin air,
virtual words with
empty promises.

We want that
world back,
a place where
strong character’s
substance reigns.

But wanting and
deciding are
two unlike things,
one is a wish,
the other intent.

Nothing comes
for free, and
everything worth
anything is still
worth the work.
