Competition and cooperation

There isn’t much to compete for, the gift is equal

Life, comes in many colors, each hue with an unique attribute

If the shades of a rainbow didn’t cooperate

It’s beauty could never be revealed, there are many such

Hidden gems, very close and within reach, as scattered bits

They remain invisible in the mind, when there is no cooperation

Amongst thoughts, each one bears responsibility

For herding the errant ones, that create the sense of loss

And separateness, spurring competition with others to win

A fair appraisal from the world, a house with many mirrors

It reflects the inner, competition and cooperation become illusory

When the mirror of the world is no longer needed to see our gift
