A Better Place

Help them find a better place.
Help them find a better place.
Hold their hands in their confusion.
Hold their heads up in their fear.

For theirs is the place that
They felt alone.
And needed us
Among them.

Yet stand they did
And win they did.
And tall they were
Among us.

*When I wrote this I was thinking especially of those who were displaced after Katrina. Since that time we have seen what is has happened in Darfur and Burma. And yet, this piece really speaks to anyone, anyone at all, who has ever had to deal with oppression and displacement. What I've noticed the resilience of people in these situations. It is remarkable! the word is overused, but it is inspiring.
