My Bones Ache
My Hairs Grey
My Pride is Gone
Can I Rest Now?
You Ask For My Seat
I Say No
My Hands Are Cuffed
Can I Rest Now?
We fight For Whats Right
Boycotting Transportation
You Thought We Lacked Education
Can i Rest Now?
The Fight Is won
Although Our Rights Just Begun
I'm Free Now
Can i rest now?
Stricken to my final resting place
Begging to be taken up from this world
I have proven myself that ill fight to death
Where i can finally Rest.
Fully Rested. No Worries. No Regrets
