Poetry isn't normally my "thing" and I tend to skim over the poems in the Challenge. But this - this caught and held my attention. I like the uneven cadence and the rythm, as well as the message. Very good!

Excellent. I walked beside you throughout th poem. I loved the structure and the used of repeated phrases. Really rally good!
This was powerful! I LOVED how you referred to LINCOLN and KING. I picked up on that right away.

This should be a winner!
This is good. I sensed the tension of bondage at the beginning and felt the relief of freedom at the end. I picked up on the shadow of "Lincoln" and "King" as well. Great job!
What an interesting style! I was pulled along and at first I thought he was going to get mugged or something, but this was better.
