the self aches to not be alone

the way in can become the way out

a group of middle schoolers
each perfect with unique gifts
each striving with unique challenges,
yet each united by the challenge
to know who lives within them
and to like that self,

somehow in all that commonality of striving together,
each can feel the common essence within the other,
and bond after bond can form,
the whole becoming even more 
than the sum of its parts,

somehow the way in to one’s uniqueness
can also become the way out to the other,

spirit knows it’s large
and aches to know itself as not alone.
