    Chains have been broken and wounds have been
    healed. Remembering the past and looking forward
    to the future. We all shall rise together once more.

    For everyone else the peom is a good one cos you are a great poet
    But for someone who comes from almost the same background as you;
    A contenent of slavery: Africa
    The emotion and meaning is quite clear
    For our ancestors didn't suffer in vain.

    When I read a poem or hear a song that makes me breakout in goosepimples, I know I've stumbled on something special. Thank you Maya. (Report) Reply
