I worked the fields
And toke the pain
I had no knowledge
But now lots of fame
You have it easy
But not for we
I fought for my rights
So you can have your freedom
I died for you
So now you cry for me
You are my children
So make me proud
You are my future
So make it rain

I wrote this piece during Black History Month. I wrote it in the perspective of a slave. I wrote as if I were in there shoes. And how they were thinking at the time.
