the battle march 

They marched.

One two left right.

They marched.

From far and wide they marched home.

With blisters and aching bodies, hearts and souls.

With optimism and voices.

They marched. They chanted. They called.

They faced slurs and ignorance, spit and hell fire.

They marched.

Wading through waters muddied, with heads held high and truth on their tongues.

They marched.

One two left right.

With love as their guide they marched and spoke to everyone. 

They marched and were counted.
They marched for us all. For love. For life.

We marched to the castle and the world heard our cry.

Our battle cry. Our victory cry. Our solidarity.
