Farewell


Amina, 9 years old

Only known a black president

Imagine that

To have only had a black president 

Grandpa passed away at 96

Born in Ocean Springs, MS

Jim crow land

Lived to see and vote for a black man

Twice

In my lifetime

Didn't Mary and Jigga say that

In my lifetime

Farewell Mr. President 

Did you do all you could for us?

No

Did you try to do some

Yes

No one can be all for all

But proud I am nevertheless
