Poetry | Today We Talk

By Emily Pinigis, Staff Columnist

Yesterday was a bad day

Yesterday we faced a stigma

Yesterday we were forced to hide

Yesterday we had no voice 

Yesterday we had no chance to defend ourselves from society

Yesterday we lost warriors to their own internal battles


Today is a better day

Today we face a smaller stigma

Today we stand strong

Today we use our voices to scream from the rooftops

Today we believe in ourselves and society

Today we unite against a common evil

Today we stand proud of who we are

Today we have warriors from all walks of life fighting for us


Tomorrow will be a great day

Tomorrow we will forget the stigma

Tomorrow we will all live in peace

Tomorrow we will be unashamed

Tomorrow we will accept all those who struggle

Tomorrow we will beat the negativity

Tomorrow we will thrive
