I Am Empowerment

Sat, 08/15/2015 - 13:54 -- LatiaMW

I am from a blood line of empowerment. 

My people have traveled for miles,

and my history runs deep.

Deeply rooted into this world,

we have made history.

Strong men and women who have taught

themselves how to read and write.

An African American woman,

first to take flight.

Even though we weren't sure on

how we would make it,

we made it through.

Growth over hundreds of years,

I AM living proof.

Because others faught,

I am able to do as I please.

Because others faught,

I am able to speak.

Speak my mind on global or local issues.

And attend college at an HBCU.

Become a Pediactric, and save many lives.

Because of my history's strong will empowerment.

I AM empowered.
