“A Place”

St. Frances Cabrini Academy
City of St. Louis, Missouri

There’s a place.
A place with a diluted sense of reality
and streaming hatred for the differences that reign inside all of us.
A place where a mirror is a sharp dagger, and a number means more than anything.
A place where ignorance roams and knowledge is chained.

There’s a place.
A place where love radiates throughout the field.
A place where bravery and self-love are encouraged,
and where our differences are accepted.
A place where trees are grown and fish aren’t poisoned.

There are places inside all of us.
There are places in the world.
