I am the Seed

I am the seed that my ancestors planted.

Resilient and grounded-

From the freedoms they founded

I am the seed that my ancestors planted.

Black and educated-

Though my demise was premeditated.

I am the seed that my ancestors planted .

Glowing and growing-

My drive never slowing.

For them I have everything to prove.

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
