We rise like the tides persistent against shore,
ever-changing peaks foam in silent salute
to humanity’s resilience.
Look back at all we have survived, all that
carries us forward now, enduring; holding
our hearts steady, cementing love
as a community.
We are survivors, waging unseen wars,
discovering over and over the brilliance
of the human spirit – unwilling,
yet again, to be broken.
