The Better of Two Words

There's no "I" in committed relationships. One breaks the chain of unity With each use. It should be avoided Like a plague. Stop using "I" in relationships It's like crossing a bridge to nowhere; Tantamount to a shipwrecked soul Stuck on a lonely island. Do not make yourself an individual. Instead of the "I" word, use "We." It's the canoe across The creek of selfishness. "We" acknowledges your partner; It's a word of inclusion That strengthens the ties that bind. In relationships, always use "We." Date written: 11/20/2022
