As individuals, we are limited
As discrete and independent musical instruments,
Each producing just a small variety of notes.
The notes sound empty, lacking intensity and support

It takes many instruments to create a symphony,
A beautiful work of art
Formed from a mixture of unique sounds and echoes:
The power of teamwork.

When brought together,
These different instruments intertwine
And cut through the air,
Merging in melody, and fighting in dissonance.

It packs punch, yet evokes beauty.
In this explosion of sounds,
The discords fade away, and the harmonies shine
What emerges is music
