I tried to find the perfect stuff

To say something that was enough

 

To usher in this coming year

And promise there’s no need for fear

 

Some of this year sucked, don’t mind confessing

Still, I can’t help but count my blessings

 

In gratitude my heart is full

So thankful and I love you all

 

Now we may be facing quite a struggle

But darling, we’re not just any Muggle!

 

No, we have power in our hearts

Our minds, our heels, and other parts

 

We’re healers, leaders, fierce drag queens

Know your strength, let it be seen!

 

With courage we must show the way

Our words create our world they say

 

And just to even up the score

Remember we’ve done this before

 

No stranger to a bully’s cry

Heard it before, we didn’t die

 

And when bravery isn't what you do

Call on us, we'll shelter you

 

Look around, what do you see?

Your glistening, bright community 

 

We're all here to support each other

Lovers, friends, sister, brother

 

With our mission clear in sight 

We bring our love, our truth, and light

 

So take my hand and smile, as we walk into 

Our bright future - Hail The New!
