Heroes of History

I can make history

By activating the youth

As effective and honorably as Sojourner Truth

I Can make history

By guiding my fellow brethren

Leading them to freedom like Harriet Tubman

I Can Make history

By achieving my dreams

Goals sought out by Doctor King

I Can Make History

By bringing light to the dark

In memory of the strong-willed Rosa Parks

I Can Make History

By telling my story through song

Expressed in ways like Louis Armstrong

I Can Make History

By setting precedence

Breaking boundaries like our current president

What is this month,

For Black History?

It’s about celebrating my heroes,

Those who fought for me

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
