Can you feel it?
Tha Thud Tha Thud Tha Thud
That is the sound of your soul smiling
Look at the colors bursting from our mouths
Glistening strands of beautiful music
Each strand pure and alone
but as the conductors hands sweep the air
a tapestry of love, hope and oneness is woven
Can you see it?
The sounds of life and struggle as they pour
from our mouths and are transformed
Can you taste our groove
the electric of the vibe and the bubbles
of joy popping into flashes of white teeth
We rise and fall like oceans
fearless and relentless we attack!
Many as one
Our waves battering the walls
of ignorance and prejudice
We are unique and we glow shine
like stars in the firmament
But we are one galaxy, a bright lit way
We sing, we celebrate, we mourn, we worship
we lift our voices to the heavens and challenge
the angels to awaken
and they descend and listen
struck stone silent by the beauty
and fragility of our humanity
and for a breath all is silent
but even as the last note fades and the tapestry
is quiet, the colors silent and muted
and we turn to leave and fade back to a world of gray
The colors of our music and the sounds of our hearts
and the humm thud of our collective soul
now gossamer strong strings of love connecting us.
And so we walk our walks,
carving tattoos of ourselves on the face of the world
our steps marking the the map that is the
entirety of human potential
We are one.
Our hearts bound by love, joy and a hope for a better tommorow
We are one.
We have one voice.
We are the Choir.
