United we stand, Divided we fall

When did we become
so fractured?

When did judgement
become a trend
and kindness a rarity?

We are here to
share the colors
of our lives

Strengthen our bonds

Understand and acknowledge love

And be the peace
and sanctuary
somebody needs

We are not here
to steal the joy
others seek

to rob them of
a life of peace
and happiness

to suffocate
or maim

to control
lord over them

We are not here
to leave a legacy of hate

How did we become this?

There is kindness in the masses
Strength in the majority

United we stand
Divided we fall

We are capable of more!
We are worth more!
We must be more!
