All my life, I've been a slave since I was fifteen.
Then, age fifty, and I'm still livin' the same life.

Now, age ninety, and I'm able to tell my story.
This is my mind as a slavery.

A story for Black History Month.
I dedicate this story to my father. Love you, Daddy!


3. Taken/Free

They took e'rything.
They took my chilren.
They took me away from my husband.
They took me away from my family.
I have nothing.

O' Lord.
Why have you put this upon me?
What sin have I done to deserve this punishment?
I love you, O' Lord.
I love you with all my heart.
But I can't do this no more.

I wanna be free.
I wanna feel my wings bein' set free from this hell.

The devil has beat me.
He's taken e'rything and more.
All he hasn't took was my love for you, Father.
Just set me free.
