I Am Apart Of History

I am apart of history
History lies deep down inside of me
I am like Martin Luther King
Just like him I'm going to let freedom ring
I am like Mary Bethune
Because like Maya Angelou I walk like I got oil wells pumping in my living room
I am apart of history
History is important to me
I am like Charles DREW
Like him I can be a scientist too
I am like Malcolm X
Come on my sisters and brothers we have to stop that
I am like Chainey, Schwenger and Moore
I will get people to vote I will go to every door
I am apart of history
I accept the rights my ancestors gave to me
I am like Jackie Robinson
Lokking in the sky at my home runs
I am like Harriet Tubman
Taking slaves to their freedom land

Listen Up Daddy

Listen up daddy I got something to say
I'm tired of pretending that everything is okay
Daddy you look over me like I'm not alive
And to get your attention daddy I have to strive
When I was little you were never there
And some times I don't even know why do I care
I use to paint pictures in my mind of the perfect dad
It consisted of all those things that I wished you would have had
A day wouldn't go by without me thinking of you
Sometimes I would say what would my dad do
And then it hit me I really don't know
Its not like you been apart of my life before
But I know someone who do know about you
The other daughter to you come home too
The daughter that you say hello and see you later at
The daughter that somehow got your hurt fully attached
I'm not mad because in life you have to deall with stuff like this
And if you don't this a big apart of your life that you shouldn't miss
So even though dad you another state away
I just wish that you could tell me happy birthday! ! ! ! ! !
