There is no doubt we are all human.

As each letter of the word
differs in look,
and imagined personality,
so do we.

although each letter
has its own uniqueness,
when they are put together,
they create a diverse unity
that is greater in meaning
than its parts.

It may be necessary
to separate
for the purpose of learning
each part.

It may be comfortable
to separate;
it may be easier
to separate;
but is comfort
and ease
always right?
