Paying Homage
11/19/2019

It was those who came before me
That paved the way
Giving me this opportunity to write poetry today-

I thank you.

For every African Man, Woman, and Child
Who fought and died for my sake
Because if you I have the freedoms that I have today-

I thank you.

For every White Man, Woman, and Child
Who fought for and believed in change
Just so that I could express myself today-

I thank you.

And for all those who were filled with hate
But fell on the edge of our swords for freedom's sake
You too helped pave the way-

I thank you.
