Unheard but Heard Voice of Negroes

Back in the 1800's, Negroes faded
With no voice and no power, they were used repeatedly
Working for white people until they die
Nobody cared
Nobody listened

Every piece of their dignity and soul were ripped away bit by bit
Sweat pouring everyday with few to eat
Thinking about their family they were separated from
Crying buckets of tears in bed every night
Waking up, and having to do it all over again

Until a few gained the strength to have a voice
Speaking up for all
Advocating to be free
Risking their lives to save the lives of others

It was all passion, commitment, and dedication
To get them heard
Changing the lives of millions
Healing the lives of thousands
And bringing back the families of hundreds

Their braveness will never be forgotten
