FC: Where The Green Grass Grows
1: For my beloved femily
3: People ask me, "What was slavery like?" And I would say...for me it was the hardest part of my life. a part I will never forget. I lost all family except a 5 year old . I couldn't lat my sister grow up that way. If I had to die trying, me and my sisters was leaving. that was all there was to it.
5: These were the fields we worked on sun up to sun down until our by bones ached. How could I let my sister live like that? Without trying? never. I loved my baby sister. I had to protect her. I felt like it was my responsibility.
7: We ran until we couldn't run no more. We ran across the underground road. We met people and saw things. We didn't have but bread, water, and the clothes on our backs but we ran to where the green grass grows.
9: freedom. sweet freedom. thank god for my freedom.
