Innocence were their names
In a child's place they were to be
Wrong place, wrong time
Some would say to thee...
It was just another day
Another day riddled with injustice, segregation
All throughout the nation
But, girls do not worry
You did not die in vain
Blood in veins began to boil
Truth be told and be it bold
Your deaths were a mold for change
Just like your memorial says...
"The tragic loss of each one of you led to the end of an era"
The error of fear remained no more
You're little "sheros" in your own light
Addie Mae, Carole, Cynthia, and Denise
You have done your job, earned your wings
Now, the knob of change has been forever turned
