Moving On

 

SlaveShip5

journey taken this stairway to heaven

A leap of faith as destiny awaits

Some are spared for fate to record

The launching of ships and whose aboard

SlaveShip2

Dreams lost and lives broken

Time and memories are left to share

Hearts swell with darkness and despair

Screams to God this burden to bare

SlaveShip

It’s man’s desire to probes and scans

The oceans floor the sky and then

As history is written its certain to say

It’s resilience in men that paved the way.

SlaveShip3

 

Commentary: 

Lest we forget and in honor of the African Holocaust, this is a poem entitled, Moving On, by Leon Thomas.
