Slave Women

I was the slave girl taken from the South to the West

I was the sister that was beaten tortured and ripped from the home of my loved ones

I was the young mother dragged and taken in chains forced to kill the life inside of me

I was the daughter who witnessed her fathers death.

I am the "slave woman"

Don't forget what started it all

Don't you forget what happened

Remember us

For we are the "slave women" who never gave up

it was a poem for a scholarship, what inspired me to write this was because many don't know the horrors of what happend in history and yet history is once again reapting itself but this time in another form in another area =(
