Mountains and Rivers 091

I understand loving, some of history,

how we learned and grew,


but down the hallways of time,

Africans are still crying for their children,

their freedom, wrapped in chains,

and the first people are still weeping,

losing everything.

I cannot, I will not,

celebrate their death,

and there are no muskets in heaven.

    1. Yes, if I remember right we’ve been to that fort. I see history different than I did years ago. This photo was taken in the US. Peace my friend.
