Ballad of a black slave

This is the ballad of the black slave, Who has been beaten and disgraced, Who has been called the n word, Who has recieved no pay. This is the ballad of the black slave, Who prays for freedom every night, Who is going to rebel, For what he think is right. Now this is the ballad of the freed slave, Who has seen much blood shed, Who has fought for equal rights, And who has won his freedom.

    This poem is so inspirational. As a young adult, I've always wonder about what the slaves went through. Not just the hate, torture, and fighting they went through. But everything that's beneath the surface. Anyway this poem is awesome!
