Mrs. Rosa Parks: Quietly Defiant

By Shayla S

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

Peacefully defensive,

Kindly aggressive,

Quietly defiant.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks: 

Dedicated to education,

Diligent at work,

Determined to gain equal rights for all.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

Careful with her actions,

Smart with her decisions,

Tactful with her arguments.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

Not willing to give in.

Standing up for herself,

And for African Americans everywhere.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

A tiny spark.

Creating a fire, 

Of a movement. 

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

Proud of her family,

Her culture,

And her history.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

Willing to be arrested,

To stop unfair treatment,

Towards other people.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

All these things,

To change the world,

For the better, forever.

 

Mrs. Rosa Parks:

Leaving her inspiring mark,

On America, and the world.

Quietly defiant.
