We are rising out of the ashes of so many broken reflections
Burning it all off
So many suggestions of who we are not.
Now we shine effortlessly
Any attempts to pull us down are futile and wavering
Flapping around in the wind, rooted in nothing solid
Flailing into oblivion
No effort required to brush these off.
Those who deliver false messages can feel it
They deal with the ripple of the fact that we stand, completely unmoved, as they stumble in their sleep.
Bitter words strengthen our resolve and we grow ever bigger, and restore love in our communities
This is the land we are born to protect
There is no time, only now.
We rise, we thrive
