under the open sky we dreamed our dreams
of majesty and making hale new worlds,
a family, united by one strength,
 and love and hope, under the open sky.

community: unbreakable and pure,
and not afraid of sweat or blood or tears,
and joying in the difference we would make:
 unshakeable and strong, community.

we raised the roof we never needed less,
the clouds, the sun, the stars, our audience,
and we were sure we wouldn't, couldn't miss,
 the music blaring as we raised the roof.

under the open sky, i stand alone.
my friends all gone, the ages turned to dust,
the clouds, both changing and unchanging, laugh
 at pseudo-fates under the open sky.
