Vines growing on side of old barn

And let us support one another 
and grow into one another, so that 
when we are tired and worn, 

when all about us has fallen 
to the ground, still may we stand 
together. Let us remember 

that tearing down one of us 
destroys us both. For were we not 
both born of the earth? 

Do we not both shiver 
in the same cold and smile 
into the same sun? 

Does not the same wind
give us both our breath?
A whisper: yes.
