Outside the Flow

Isolation,
standing outside the flow,
occasionally tossing leaves into the river
and watching them go.

Discarded,
standing outside the current,
the contribution that’d aid us all
stagnates because society sees different.

Inclusion,
standing against the tide,
not as one in mindless group think,
but as achieving individuals united.

Imagine what we could do.
