Without the dark,

where would we find light?

Without the peace,

for what would we fight?

In solemn stillness,

there grows the frenzy.

In columns of business’

are scattered the friend seed.

What is small

defines the large.

What is pulled

pushes the barge.

Only the speed

of those in the lead,

creates a show

to those who are slow.

The feed and the growth

of symbiosis.

The needs of them both

met at oasis.
