Interconnection

27 Nov

Like a runner in a relay race
Passing the baton from one runner to another
Our actions, some large, some small
Beget reactions

Like a row of domino
Falling in place, one card into another
Our movements, some large, some small
Sets off reactions

Like the waters in an ocean surge
Forming waves that clash one into another
Our ripples, some large, some small
Produce counter reactions

We are all interconnected
Even though we act like we don’t have a clue
Strangers today can be neighbours tomorrow
Though we cross the others path without saying how do you do

We are all interconnected
Even though we act like we don’t have a clue
Northpole today we may be in the equator tomorrow
Seismic earth shaking motions can make it so.

You may seem like just one
A speck in the sea of billions
But your action can set of a chain reaction
That can echo in the sea of billions

And so I met the stranger
Stranded with no place to go
His eyes asked ‘can you help me’
And with my heart I answered, ‘yes I can’.

The stranger found a place to stay
And a happy mouth to speak
Thousands of miles he had traveled
Only to find a brother in me

The stranger helped another stranger
His postcard did say so
Because you showed me kindness
I swore to be kind to others too

You may seem like just one
A speck in the sea of billions
But your action can set of a chain reaction
That can echo in the sea of billions
