Utopia: Unity



The part of this song that really stood out to me as inspiring for the Utopia theme is:

It’ll take a lot more than words and guns,
A whole lot more than riches and muscle.
The hands of the many must join as one,
And together we’ll cross the river.

No matter the philosophy of your Utopian society, a community must come together as one to achieve their goals. Hearts and hands in harmony.

What is at the heart of your Republic? What ideology brings your utopians together?

Write for us about Unity and together we’ll cross the river.

About t.s.wright

Writer, reader, casual photographer, nature-lover, dog mom. I grew up in a tree, inside a book, whispering possible futures into discarded seed pods that curled up and exploded each summer. One day, they cut down my tree and I was forced to go to school while waiting for the replacement trees to grow strong enough to hold me. But while we waited, I grew too heavy and awkward to climb, so I had to get a job. I spent my days surrounded by flimsy walls covered in carpet that made boxes and people who forgot to look out windows. I worked really hard. Possibilities were replaced with formulas and exactitude. Eventually I forgot how to climb a tree...and how to smile. Then one day, a dog licked my foot excessively and I remembered smiling. That reminded me of more things that didn't cost money and couldn't be tallied in a spreadsheet - like hugs and love and being happy. So I found myself a Steve who reminded me what home was. Then we filled it and our hearts with dogs. Eventually we planted our own tree, together. Even though I'm happy right here, right now, I remembered that we all need possibilities to dream of, so I've started writing them down.
