    Free At Last ~
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    A cultured people standing fast
    learnt from a gloried past
    present in the struggle
    want nothing more
    than to return to
    their natural
    place of
    dignity

    "Free
    at last"


    Beautiful
    black people
    who throughout
    history have been
    subject to scorn and
    relentless unjust ridicule

    The wretchedness by which
    the institution of slavery
    contributed to mightily
    its stigma felt
    universally

    As
    misery
    loves company

    And yet...
    am I comfortable
    in my own precious skin

    The truth shall set you free ~
