She Will Shine

Look before you today at the actions
That rebuild that which was broken
By those clinging to outdated shibboleth
Intended for division and separation
To highlight difference ignored by many
Under one sun, bathed by the same moon
Wishing, dreaming and hoping
For a great life in peaceful harmony
With our music vibrating in our hearts
The dust of our land coating our souls
And our rivers running in our spirits
A country filled with gold and gems
Just as her earth carries them beneath
A thorough demonstration of her strength
She is a resilient and tensile diamond
And her people will polish her to great shine
