I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

CLAY

If only
we had remained clay

If only
breath did not fill our lungs

If only
we could not hear the cry of children

If only
we cannot see pain

We are living planets, rotating
in circles around one another,

Tied to one another
by silence and motion

Along with the light of stars
and the darkness that holds it all

— Abraham Menashe
