    “All Rise!”



    And should night’s long curtains break

    For a short intermission long enough

    For us to see the light of day

    Let us not stand selfish in the spotlight of warmth or comfort

    But let us shiver remembering all of those who’ve

    Shone in darkness to be a light for our ways

    Should we be blessed with grace and mercy

    To breathe in a fresh new morn

    Let us inhale!

    Awake no more to look in mirrored eyes

    For imperfections or colored reflections

    But bravely come to stare in hearts

    To see the perfect reflection of life

    One United Spirit of America

    That shares God’s humanity for Love

    That undoubtedly still believes there’s Life & Liberty!

    Not just the pursuit of happiness for oneself

    But better yet a joy for all

    Because our joy comes in the morning

    When the sunrises in the east to dawn on us that

    We are more than one nation divisible

    More than separable

    More than for white or for colored fountains

    More than English or Spanish directions

    More than Stars and Strips

    More Than Tears and Strife

    Even more than you or me


    But still no less than human

    Because we are still

    The beacon that sits upon a hill

    For the world to see that

    United We Fall and United We Stand Up Again!
