Third Rock



(who laugh and cry)who dream,create and kill
while the world moves;and every part stands still:
– E.E. Cummings

Here’s my arms
we can hide today
and love the world away.
– Kenny Rogers

 

We all live in glass
houses on foundations
of sand, a stone’s throw
from nothing. But if you
drop your cobbled heart,
I will toss mine loose
into all this salt.

We all give it every
-thing we’ve got, lend a
hand when we can, and
take the punches as they
come. And oh, they come.
But when it’s all said
and done, we are one.
