Till We Bring Them Home Again
By: Mia Austin-Scoggins

There are voices newly rising,
We can hear them sound as one.
They’re our brothers, they’re our sisters,
They’re our children, dads, and moms.

We have listened to their stories.
We have heard them speak their truth.
We have seen the young grown aged,
Spied the old man in the youth.

Will you walk along beside us,
Heart to heart and hand in hand?
We’re reclaiming hope and justice.
And for peace we make our stand.

We’re the faith that’s never broken,
We’re the love that has no end.
We are marching, “Steady onward!”
Till we bring them home again.

For our finest, for the futures
Sacrificed in fire and blood,
By the rage that makes us righteous,
By the grace that makes us good,

We’re the cadre of the kindred:
Country, family, and friends,
As the dark becomes the dawning
And we bring them home again.

Will you walk along beside us,
Heart to heart and hand in hand?
We’re reclaiming hope and justice.
And for peace we make our stand.

We’re the faith that’s never broken,
We’re the love that has no end.
We are marching, “Steady onward!”
Till we bring them home again.

Dedicated to SSgt. Jonathan Segal, USMC, for he is legion.
