JLJ Poem: Happy Black History Month

Happy Black History Month! 


Do you hear that?!

It’s my ancestors cheering.

I am doing things they only dreamed of 

They are so happy for me.

They sacrificed so I wouldn’t have to

I look to them for inspiration

I look to them for encouragement

I feel them on my shoulders 

They are my wings to help me soar
