a heart without borders

a poem inspired by Sil Ganzó and the amazing team at ourBRIDGE for Kids working everyday to create home for our newly arrived children and families

in a world
that tries to put borders and lines
in the way of how
we love, welcome and relate
a heart without borders
will never abate

when others see barriers
this kind of love builds bridges
when others count out
it will count you in
because a heart without borders
is what eradicates misunderstanding and hate

it is full of conviction
for a cause
a respite and a place to heal
a moment
to experience home in a way
that honors each unique culture and tongue
it shows up with hope
when there is despair
it makes one feel heard
when it felt like no one had ears
it generates resources
when no one would share
and it shows up with courage
when fear draws too near

because this kind of heart
knows no bounds
