Finding Our Way Home: A Poem By Bluz

By Bluz

We are all journeys trying to find our way home

  Wading thru the troubled waters looking out for the bridge

And some of us right now

are the bridge

Carrying over the next generation of Justice seekers

Freedom fighters, educators, creators,

doctors, farmers, mother’s father’s

families communities

We are all

Stone and Steel, Courage and Passion

Standing strong over the troubled waters

This city we live in

Is landscaped with so many beautiful faces

Connected by Pride

We survive off the good vibes we give to each other

Not only fans of the Panther and Hornets

We are fans of handing out  hot meals and blankets to the homeless

Habitat for humanity home builders

Building up our Pride for the Queen City

We aren’t just bankin and racing

We are erasing poverty and fighting for equality

Until the sun shines on every Charlottean

Warming the heart of every human being

And the beauty of this city radiates from every face

And every space feels like

Home

Feels we all belong

Feel we can all sing the same song
