Back to poetry
You who built a movement
You who firmly believed in 'could'
You who did something small, who did anything at all,
And you who took a tragedy and forged a force for good.
We who bought t-shirts and posters and billboards
We who did it all in the name of Autumn
We who cultivated community, a paragon of unity
And we who made sure she'd never be forgotten.
We Did It.
You did it.
You who saw art and felt it.
You who refused to concede to the consensus
You who told a friend, defied the idea of 'the end'
And you whose belief was relentless
You who liked a post.
You who diligently retweeted
You who would hashtag, and wave the flag
And you who made sure every new face was greeted.
You who wrote and you who drew.
You who painted, crafted and created.
You who campaigned, steadfastly remained
And you who resolutely debated.
You who met derision with politeness
You who met dismissal with clarity
You who said never say never, we can come together
And you who fought ridicule with charity.
