I remember the March to Washington I was just a child, just a little thing. Seeing hundreds of people walking right by my front door. They were singing. They were waving. I was smiling. I was waving. It was so wonderful. So many people happy. I remember when Martin Luther King was shot I was just a child watching TV Everyone though it was a April fool joke It was no joke The country went into a panic. It really happen So many people crying I remember the Riot and how the city burned Lighting up the sky’s in the dark of the night I was just a little thing And I was screaming from the horror Guns shots rung in the night So many people dying I remember the Curfew The city placed on shut down Tank coming up my street Soldiers fully loaded Marching in front of my home I peeked out the window And frozen from the sight So many tanks So many soldiers Invaded the block where people once March happily now there foot soldiers fully loaded With orders to shoot on sight So many People praying. I remember being hungry All the food had to be ration Filling pots and jars with water The riot destroy the markets The looter took all of it The only food was in the white hood But we could not leave our hood Sitting very quietly The only sound was stomach rumbling I was just a little thing, Nothing but a child I was so scared. It last 5 days But to me it never went away So many people hungry I remember people happy I remember people praying I remember peolpe dying I remember tanks and soldiers I remember being hungry I remember more then I want to. I was nothing but a child Nothing but a little thing Now I am Walking History This is not the end To be continued. The struggle goes on.
