Red, White, and You

Fri, 05/05/2017 - 17:09 -- tbo18

Color encompassing unfamiliar faces


All united under one familiar flag soaring high 


Unknown are the backgrounds, but defined are the races 


Gathering and discussing under one sky




Imagine beauty and gratitude found in every color 


Souls instead of skin tones defining our worth 


Enough love and hope within a single room to make one shudder 


Forgone the hostility, prejudice, and dearth 




Embracing the warmth from hand clasping hand


Standing alongside our companions once thought our enemies 


Proudly together we stand 


O'er Land and Seas
