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. For more information about the City of Ontario, visit www.ontarioca.gov.
