Fitting in

If we were squares
We could make up a Rubik’s cube
But I would still not fit in
A bright silver in an orange side.

If we were sheep
We could form a flock
But I would still not fit in
A Jacob amongst the Merinos.

If we were seeds
We could make a garden
But I would still not fit in
A red poppy in a bed of roses.

If we were clouds
We could chase across the sky
But I would still not fit in
A thunderstorm amongst the Cirrus.

Let us instead make a quilt
With different patterns, shapes and textures
Each piece with an equal place
Creating warmth and beauty together.
