Victory

Just think…
where we came from.
The over all picture
is not an attractive one
but look deeper
look for the real people.
My great grandmother was alive
during that time, too
Woman like her were so few
but they were.
She did what she had to do
to fight
for what she believed in.
Her fight must have traveled
through the generations
because I am her legacy.
I’m taking the first swing
dodging the punches
and voting
for CHANGE in this election.

I want to be like the woman
in Rowanda…
she used their ignorance
as her weapon against
the enemy.
Her fight caused them
to remember her name
and her name,
is today,
the same
Her name is Victory.

It’s 2008,
although some still remain to hate
we,
black, red, yellow, and white,
are the color of the trunks
that the contestant on the left
is sporting tonight.
She’s fighting for the title
of a champion
She has trained
She has prepared
sometimes twice a day.
She is strong, like her mama’s mom
and in shape
She is ready.
Her name…its always been the same.
Her name is Victory
