Fists and Fingers

Individual fingers are really useful for
Pointing
Pulling triggers
And yes, of course, scrolling.
But a lone finger can’t pack a punch.
There are benefits
To being professionally separate
To creating a niche
And serving it well.
But what about the ecosystem?
The environment you are evolving in
The greater circle you inhabit
That includes people
You don’t like
And your so-called competition.
There is a time
For pointing fingers
For going alone
And getting things done
Your way.
But once in a while
Every finger needs to curl
And be reminded
That though it may be
Remarkable on its own
There are great benefits
To being a part of something
Larger than itself.
