Individual grains of sand are not identical.
They are separate chips of stone,
each from far flung places,
ground by separate journeys to the sea,
united only by their common destination.
When you look closely at a beach
you can see a continent.

If we are identical then unity is merely uniformity.
Together we are just the same.
But for us, unity is a great and courageous feat
for we are determined, unique individuals
with strengths and weaknesses.
Together we become more.

Sharing only a rough journey,
from far distant places,
we arrive at appointed times
to the same destination
and become something greater.
