Faith, fiction and cancer stuff.

This is us

This is us.

Every race

Every language

Every age.

 

A multi-cultural

multi-faith

multi-generational place.

Some were born here,

Some far away.

Some want to go,

Some long to stay.

 

Boasting an elite degree

Or from the school of hard knocks.

Dressed in opera-finery

Or holey socks

We stand together

In this green country.

 

Hope, fear, anger, sorrow

Collide.

 

What happens next?

That’s down to what the politicians,

Businesses,

Media and

Ultimately what

We decide.

 

Will we let hatred run naked through the streets, high on fear?

Or kindness and love persevere?

 

I guess we’ll have to see.

 

So I ask you to stand

With me

Like brother

Like sister.

Not torn by differences

But together in unity.

 

Our United Kingdom.
