Rosa Mayfair

Rookie (a hospital (hahaha so funny, not))

Rosa Parks


I knew what she did
But I didn't know her name until she died
Now Im not going to lie to you
So I wont claim that I cried
But I'd never thaught
About how brave she was
In refusing to move
From the seat on that bus

Now i think it's sad
That it caused such a stir
That because of her skin
They thaught less of her
That they tried to make her feel
Like she was two feet small
And I think it's sad
That she had to be brave at all

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
