Pride is Finally Here

by Halle Preneta

A sea of rainbow all around.

My smile growing and growing

with each passing sound.

Pride is finally here.

A line of cars covered in rainbow

slowly move down the street.

A world I love and know.

Pride is finally here.

We can’t be together physically

but feelings are the same;

immense joy and connectivity.

Pride is finally here.

Others start lining the streets.

There’s people here who support us!

Everyone moving to the musical beat.

Pride is finally here.

My community, all here together.

Connected in a time of uncertainty.

I’ll love and defend them forever.

Pride is finally here.
