Rosa Parks - Poem by Rosa Mayfair

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

    What is sadder is that it still happens today.
    love the way you have worded this.
