Fredrick Douglas - Found Poem



I found myself a slave

It was all new to me

I was left in hell

Saddened by seeing a man so extremely crushed

I was broken in body, soul, and spirit

I was ruined...helpless

I was transformed by weakness

I was only to be enlightened

I found support

I was determined to be used no more

I was at battle with my career as a slave

I understood the pathway from slavery to freedom

I set out with high hope

I finally succeeded
