“We’re doing well during this hard time, we want to help you out. We believe in what you’re doing, despite all of those who doubt.”
These words were unexpected, guilt momentarily gripped our hearts.
We never expect a handout, though this is ripping us apart.
But with a tear in your eye, a humble smile on your face, you thanked them for this kind gesture.
A renewed sense of faith to get through this mess, thanks to the kindness of relative strangers.
We see these things in movies, but never think it will happen to us.
But good things come when we stand up for ourselves, even when the fallout is rough.
We keep pushing forward and fighting the man, who keeps kicking us when we are down.
But we won’t be defeated or fading away with community around.
We’re stronger together and they can’t keep us apart, no matter how hard they try.
We’ll walk through the flames and come out unscathed, always side by side.
