Every Voice Matters

We get so used to fighting the "them"
That we start to fight our "us"
We waste our time refining "us"
And loose the message to minutia

But it isn't always about one voice
Or one consistent message
The details aren't as important
As the thread that binds us

Our allies make us stronger
Our teachers further the message
A chorus make us louder
Division can only divide us

There is value in varied perspectives
The old voice can bring wisdom
The young voice can bring change
The dissenting voice can bring reflection

A unexpected spark in one person
Grows to a slow burn in the many
Flames can come together as a wildfire
But won't survive if they're doused.
