As this moment passes
We will grow old.
We will lose hope.
We will have to ask for forgiveness.
We will find ourselves in our parents’ shoes.
And someday in our grandparents’ shoes.
And we will wonder
If we did the right thing.
Yet never forget
This moment of possibility:
That we have two eyes, two legs to stand on.
That this moment is ours to create.
We could change the future and make history
This time to never forget
The living hopes and dreams that shaped today.
And to never forget
That life goes around in circles
This is our turn.
