Pride

(This poem was originally published in Share Wisdom: A Poetry Anthology in 1995.)

Just hold on
A little while longer
We shall overcome
This prejudice
Join together
Make our voice strong
To show them our pride
Our courage
Our love

Pride
In the goodness of our intent
Pride
In our caring for those in fear
Pride
In our openness of arms
Pride
In our liberation that is near
Pride
In the knowledge that
We are God's children
Living our lives
Proud of who we are
Living our lives
With courage overflowing
Living our lives
With love
