Rosa Parks Scenic Seating

by Samuel Black

Rosa Parks stepped into the bus
as a defender of justice: 
Illuminating, resonating, jubilating
captivating, all our imagination.
Fighting for justice
standing up to injustice
while taking her seat.

Seeking equality, moving triumphantly
securely touching hearts mightily.
Building bonds of unity
by boundless ability.

God's destiny divinely shining
she smiled eloquently
effectively fighting bigotry.
Interweaving racial tapestry and
showing God's love majesty.
Her heart of gold, never growing old
such a story yet to be told
so hot; not getting cold.

Always abounding with liberty
instilling awesome autonomy
and seeking equal economy.
Rosa showed fortitude of strength
hope, liberty, pride
with God's compassionate
and abiding love.

She lived humbly
sat passionately
and with pride: 
America stood up
and saluted her
