2019 State of the City - We are Ontario

Come with me and let's grow as trees
Building upon a foundation rooted in the strongest earth
Our history.

Let's stretch branches and leaves
Towards that canopy they always said contains us
And break through

See, we are stronger than that
Our shade welcome relief to those still making their way
Towards the Sun

We are evergreen
Never ceasing to grow onward and upward
And never forgetting where we came from

We are everlasting
And we shall elevate ourselves as such
Only looking down to lift those below us up
We shall rocket into the inky night sky
And illuminate with explosions of success and vibrant life
Our myriad colors dripping down that dark canvas
Proof we were there
And we will not be finished with that

See we do not elevate ourselves to an end
We continually strive upward in the hopes that in doing so
We create beginnings.

Come with me and let’s grow roots.
We are a community of friends and family
Well established in history knowing full well what we can be
We are businessmen and doctors, mechanics and rock stars
We are everything anyone could ever want to be
And we achieve so much Together.

And every single leaf on this canopy we spread across the face of this Earth came from one single seed
Freed from dusty constraints made plain in the sun and the rain.
Absolute cosmos
Tucked away inside the most common of things
We create beginnings

The way we plant ourselves in those around us.
We elevate ourselves so that when all is said and done we see above the soot and smog
and every little thing that distracts us from the Truth

That we are better with each other.
That we are better because of each other

We Are Ontario.
