We're all just a cog
On the cogwheel churning
The existence of all humanity

    Hmm. How valuable is the cog without which the cogwheel could not churn and give life all its meaning.

    But the aim is to fit in each part and finish the puzzle !
    And slowly but surely we can do that !
    Read in the Bible, Isaiah 1 ; 18 for the last final piece to finish the puzzle !
    Go for it !
