If we are to have justice 

​If we are to believe in justice 

We must but believe in ourselves 

And if we are to believe in ourselves 

We must give form and substance 

To those things we cherish 

To those values 

Those dreams and visions 

That give light in the darkness 

And hope for those unheard and unseen 

Those stories,  those tales

That say people matter

Regardless of their circumstances 

And tell us that injustice 

Is an attack and injury to

All of us 

That what we stand for matters

And defines who we are

And what we might become
