The One Pager Poems Project
Walking, Walking, keep walking along,
walking, walking, been walking so long
Footsteps forced back on the sorrow road
Chains dragging the dust a heavy load
Bloody marks on tomorrow's road
Walking, Walking, keep walking along ...
Master caught a runaway
Tomorrow my son rise another day
Rise up my brothers free today
How do they hold the line so long?
How do they hold the line so strong??
With Denmark Vesey the line is long.
With Harriet Tubman walking along.
With John Brown's body marching along.
With Frederick Douglass the line holds
Footsteps joining from everywhere,
Heading for justice and getting there!
