Strength Through Generations This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   From the great shores of Africa,
To thedowntown streets of Brooklyn
We have overcome the storm.
Through deaths,hangings and beatings
We still march on. No test or obstacle
Has been tootough for a mighty race of
People to face. Mistreatment that has been thefire
Which burns for the desire to reach excellence.
Whatever tribulationthat may come will never be
Too hard, because we have gained strengththrough
Generations who will last henceforth and forever more.
