Of Parks, and Buses

Stubborn girl.

Just trying to get home
from work,
tired feet aching
sitting where you “should”
then asked to move
voice quiet,
…..you
told that driver
………no
on a December day
when the color of your skin
revealed the content of his
character.

Refusing to let
equality
justice
honor
be displaced,
you sat down
with grace
to stand up
for what was right.

  1. LOVE this De! A simple tribute to an equally simple, and monumental, event. Color me in awe. :-]
