People rush by
The sky is gray
The streets are empty
The whole world feels this way, it says
Stay inside,
Be quiet,
Don’t ask questions.
But on the corner there’s a boy
He steps on outside and yells
“Why must we hide?”
The world stays quiet
The boy repeats his question
“Why must we hide?”
A different boy steps out and says
“Listen to us.”
The world takes a breath and steps outside
and says…
“We Are.”
