dawn’s early light

gallantly stream

your true colors

without worry of rejection

from a country built

in the soil of non-conformity.

dirty uniforms and dying soldiers

reveled to the call

of the underdog.

cast out by the rest

we take in your weary.

 

please don’t change our path.

 

standing high on your hill

looking down

on the masses.

for the beauty of our making

always came from

rising up,

climbing the mountainside

we shared

together.
