Loneliness and Fair-weather Friends

ARMS LOCKED IN FRIENDSHIP

RINGS OF CHILDREN

DANCE ROUND IN CIRCLES


ONE LOSES HIS BALANCE AND FALLS

THE RING CLOSES IN TO MEND THE BREAK


THE ONE WHO FELL REGAINS HIS STATURE

BUT IT’S SILENCE TO THEIR EARS

SOMEONE HAS TAKEN HIS PLACE


CLOSE KNIT RINGS OF CHILDREN

DANCE ROUND IN CIRCLES

ARMS WEAVED TOGETHER IN HARMONY


THE RING LOOKS IN

BUT NEVER OUT

THE RING IS UNFORGIVING


THE ONE WHO FELL REGAINS HIS STATURE

HE GOES FROM RING TO RING

BUT NEVER BREAKS THROUGH


ARMS LOCKED IN FRIENDSHIP

RINGS OF CHILDREN

DANCE ROUND IN CIRCLES


EXCEPT ONE
