Cell Speaks

By Ibrahim Ibn Salma

In singles or groups we
Always exist,
You made us,
So that
We make you,
Fifty trillions of us
Live inside you in communion,
We survive because
We love one another;
The strong empower the weak—
All is powerful,
The healthy heal the sick—
All is healthy,
We are commanded by
Your thoughts, feelings and
Send us love—
Send us kindness—
Send us compassion,
Send you life.
