An interdependent feeling of growing together,
Tell me, Dad, should we walk or run?
You and I, a force forever.
The child in you,
Now here resides,
In the hole that is in me
And that keeps me alive.
We will grow wiser,
And you will remain,
The same old boy,
In the spaces of my young mind.
Let’s not stop and wait for the others,
We don’t run for them, but we travel together,
Brothers this moment , and friend in another.
We protect and preserve
The forces that bind us
A memory in a photograph
Because that’s all we have.
But we will act, not lose face or suffer,
Sing, dance and pray to be heard
Dad, take my hand, we’ll walk awhile longer
You and I, the force grows stronger.
