With beautiful, violent life
Stretching past the limiting horizon
We embrace continents,
Wave after wave of us
Ebbing, surging, cresting, flooding
The city streets with our bodies,
Pouring into every open space
Carrying our words, our fight, our sons
Welcoming wind and rain and snow
Our roaring waters swell.
Stand in awe of our majesty.
Beware our raging storms.
