Vanport

Faces of you in my mind

Stories etched with thread and needle

Embroider hope, fight, live across my heart.

Flooding waters tried to drown

out generations to come

but you found higher ground.

Together building fortresses of

Family, faith,  love.

Deciding to focus your efforts

on community not chaos

You gathered strength

Collected courage

To face unknown waters.

Now standing in the shadows

Of your survival

Descendants now reach further, bridging

Over mental, racial,emotional divides.

I am your descendant.

I too am Vanport.
