    This is absolutely perfect in so many ways. If this poem doesn't win something is wrong with this site. I see a lot of bs poems winning every week while the deserving ones get no recognition. I'm kind of tired of seeing the same couple friends nominating eachothers garbage every week too haha Anyways this was fantastic I wish I could give it more. Great work girl

    I liked all the history you incorporated into this. knowing the history of the civil rights movement and the struggle they fought really reflects well on this. i hope you do well in the contest ^_^
