We are here

We are here in this place of hate and fear

We are here in this place where

None of us can remain silent

We are here in this place where

We all shout out that:

“You are wrong

Children belong with their parents

Your fear and your hate-

you can keep all

to yourself.

We want no part in your political games

That

Destroys families and

That

Traumatizes us all

Leaving us

Broken and shattered

Like your

Political soul that

Survives on

Fear and hate”

We are here in this place

Where your

Fear and hate

Will

Not

Win

Cousins Like Mine

1. Cousins like Mine 

Maybe you have 

Cousins like mine

Brave and strong

Self sacrificing

Who you can call on at

Any time any where any place

Maybe you have 

Cousins like mine

Who you can call up

Anytime teasing and laughing

Having a good ol’ time

Maybe you have 

Cousins like mine

Who know the pain

Who know the love

Who know the grace

That our family has endured

Maybe you have 

Cousins like mine

That blend together more like 

Brothers and sisters

Maybe you have 

Cousins like mine
