Like a Kernel

We all start out as a little kernel. 

We’re thrown in a bag with others that we are told are a lot like us. 

There is no alternative present. We must stay and maintain hope.

We may get along just fine, but we each maintain our independence. We’re one of many.  

Then the day comes. It’s time to serve our purpose.  

Like a caterpillar to a butterfly, we transform. We evolve beyond a single simple entity. We’ve grown. We’re more valuable now. 

Above all else, we leave the bag a team player. Enriched by the experience together, we all become one. Many to one.
