The Trail of Tears

The Trail of Tears
Is a historic sight,
That you can see day or night.
The Cherokee led a peaceful existence,
Much like sheep grazing on the land.
But the soldiers were greedy, and they took a stand.

The soldiers appeared like stampeding horses.
They confronted the Cherokees with demand.
The Cherokees fought back night and day
until they could no longer stand.

Their rights were taken,
Their strength was gone
and they met defeat – -
It was all so wrong.

Through unwelcome violence,
These people lost face
they became a whisper,
And soon…… were erased.
