1 A People Place If this is not a place where tears are understood
If this is not a place where tears are understood Where can I go to cry? If this is not a place where my spirit can take wing Where do I go to fly? If this is not a place where my questions can be asked Where do I go to seek? If this is not a place where my feelings can be heard Where do I go to speak? If this is not a place where you will accept me as I am Where can I go to be? If this is not a place where I can try to learn and grow Where do I just be me?
