Piecing it all together

What a year 2022 has been,

Now we know what we didn’t then:

Not to worry and stress

About the strife and the mess,

To laugh in the face

Of the twists and fast pace.

Thanks to people like you,

We’ve successfully muddled through.

Our disparate pieces—the parts—

Together, they create a work of art!

Finding our inner piece — we fit perfectly together.
