Born only a delicate seed

Tangled in the roots of slavery.

Fate captured his mother

But he held on to his bravery.

Prejudice and hate

Built a wall around his future

But he continued to break it down.

He changed the course of nature.

He didn’t work for riches

Or the attention from another.

He lived a life dedicated to

Finding benefits for others.

He used the pallet of his heart

To create life’s beautiful hue.

And over the faded walls

He painted a royal blue.
