Vallejo Unity Day 2018 Community Poem
Community unity is a beautiful thing. We all are so different, but fight for the same dream.
Unity & Equality
Brotherhood & Sisterhood
Peace & love
Unity is the cycle of our lives. Breathe in and out to the end.
Love. Happiness. Peace.
It is a beautiful life!
When we stand together, no one can sit by and ignore us!
We all need restorative justice and practice it until repetition becomes easy and forgiveness doesn’t take 20 years or more. Unity – a work in progress. We live in the shelter of each other.
Symbiotic fish tank hiding under rocks of our collective fear yin and yang of all who will support us, so we may stand together.
Nothing lasts forever, especially me…with outrageous hesitation, I will cease to be.
Be kind. Be truthful.
Cool breeze off the bay, birdsong morning.
I enjoy freedom to move freely.
