Who Am I?

I am Angelou's inspiration

That exceeded limitation

I am Gandhi's patience

Waiting for peace and cooperation

Yet I am X's passion

Violence only in reaction

I am Benjamin's hope

Fighting in a war that will never repay him

I am Bessie Coleman's vision

Saw what could be and wind it

I am Langston Hughes' creativity

Art filled with messages and life lessons

I am Rosa Parks' feet

Willing to stand for beliefs

I am Ray Charles' senses

Redefining magic touch

I am Ali's stamina

Fighting my way to victory

I am Huey and Angela's mindset

Ready to die for cause if necessary

And In Them I Am Born

I am History
