One

By    

What difference just one number makes
In any quantity
The difference between means and wealth
Or lack and poverty

What difference just one number makes
In how a thing is felt
Whether water turns to ice
Or whether it will melt

What difference just one number makes
In how a thing’s perceived,
A devastating failure
Or a victory achieved

What difference just one number makes
In how a place is shroud
Whether it’s deserted there
Or whether there’s a crowd

What difference just one number makes
Just a single one
And so, I hope, as “one” myself,
There’s much that can be done
