‘For my people…‘

~ For my people… ~
.
.
…And this better existence
will consist of my people
for my people
by my people
laying claim to their name
in this gigantic game
and the potential
to continue
doing amazing things
fighting the good fight
telling the stories
which need to be told.
Tenaciously surviving,
elegantly striving
to give those stories
a happy ending.
