the work


the work

“I believe that you see something that you want to get done, 
you cannot give up, and you cannot give in.” 

-John Lewis

five hundred years of oppression


followed by a freedom that isn’t equal

a freedom that is lesser

then the jim crow laws

the economics that keep ghettos in existence

schools with no funding 

ancient books

overcrowded classrooms

access to voting is blocked

police who stop and frisk because of your color

people who fear you

and cross the street when you walk

there is so much to get done

it’s almost unbelievable

but you cannot give up

and you cannot give in

stay the course 

take on the work

day by day 


there can never be a surrender
