I DARE NOT SAY

woman hostageLife for me has been good

And I’ve lived the best I could,

But I dare not say

That I did it my way.

 

I grew up in Old South,

And I learned very early on

 To “Be a good girl and mine your mouth.”

I was scared and not really free

To speak against what bothered me.

 

Thank God there were other men

Who cried out against racial   sins

And uncovered for the world to see

Just how cruel injustice can be.

 

Oh hats off to those players brave

Who feared not their fortunes to save.

For in kneeling down on one knee,

They stand tall to keep us free.
