We're woven in this tapestry
us, and them, and all the rest:
a spectral blend of unity,
diversified and coalesced.
Each difference, opportunity:
recall how far we had progressed.
Our trees of genealogy
intertwined and do attest
our mutual community,
divergent yet converging, blessed.
The weavers of this tapestry:
everyone once none oppressed.
