Peace, I saw you today.
We were together.
Our sisters and brothers were there.
We were one.
There was no difference to be seen.
We were comfortable.
Our lives entwined, our hearts adjusted to a new reality.
The old and the young.
The sighted and the blind.
Our countries diversity, without divide,
was seen and celebrated.
It is reflected in our eyes, solidarity prevails.
Divided we fail, together we’re strong, our flag represents freedom for all.
The pit in the bottom of my stomach, the heat on the back of my neck.
If life was easy, we would be stress free.
Driving down the road, rushing here and there. Late or put upon, challenged in some way, pressured by loved ones, work or play.
Our paths are cluttered by obstacles to set free.
The best case scenario is who we can become to be.
Learning to breathe.
