24/25 Rosa!

Rosa Parks
you, woman of simple strength
sitting when sitting was a crime
standing up for what you believe,
when what you believed was ignored
changing history in a single decision
inspiring a country with a one-track mind
freedom claimed
when freedom was denied
and here you've gone and died

i won't forget
i won't forget to remind others
i won't forget to do as you did and did again and again
the fight became your fight
the abstractions became facts

i won't forget
dear Rosa Parks


Rosa Parks died Monday, October 24th at the age of 92. Thank you for living your life, dear lady.
