The problem:

the not knowing
how to give what is

the not feeling
like there is enough
to go around

the worrying that
there is hurt
waiting to happen
on the horizon.

And we dare to
come together,
over and over again,

searching for the
cement that might
bind us together,

despite the fear
that comes in a heavy wave
uncertainty riding the crest

We push onward

trying to extend
the momentum

trying not to think
about where we
might land.
