Hand in hand
Heart in heart
Mind in mind
Soul in soul.

Coming together,
United we stand
Against them, the ones
Who don't care,
We can change their minds.
We can change their heats.
We can change their souls.
From hate,
It morphs into a love like no other.
We alone stood against their spewing words and boiling actions, a volcano of horror erupting before us.
And we stood with love in our hearts, open minds and open arms as our weapons.
We did not run, we were not afraid.
They couldn't understand, so we enlightened their shadowed minds.
Ghosts were sent away, and darkness was replaced with
Light.
Hate was replaced with
Love.
And negativity was replaced with
Hope.
They slowly walked over
And joined our lines and lines
of soldiers, fighting against hate.
They loved, and became aware.
We did that.
We did that
Hand in hand
Heart in heart
Mind in mind
Soul in soul.
