This is meant to be a good thing,
the aftermath is peace,
the initial impact, an unknown force,
bringing bodies together,
perhaps mind and soul,
hadn’t ever imagined a crossing point,
where lives could offer a solution,

our own island,
the shopping mecca that lights our heart.
We are compelled to lose focus,
on merit standing right next to you
now in this moment.
Turn to either side of you and smile,
imagine the miles
of good fortune you have just begun.
