This powerfully poignant poem speaks to the awful injustices that many black people had to endure. Sadly, in some places, this is still going on.
This entry was perfect in rhyme--never feeling forced--and I was moved by your words.
I remember those days and the struggles many of the blacks had to endure. Your poem is a grim reminder of that battle and the enduring pain of its memory,
Excellent poem with a powerful and touching message.
very good!!! nice build of each stanza, each a counterpoint of walking and purpose. grabbed the soul, drew the heart, and challenged the mind. well done.
It's so hard to believe so much injustice was in our U.S. Amazing. Good job.
There were lots of "civil rights" pieces this week--this one is by far my favorite. Such dignity!
Your words carve out such powerful truths. Especially, "not outward law, but inward mind."
