Impacted Our Lives- Rosa Lee Parks

Why was it that so many people had to hate because of different race? Well it is something that might have been seen in the past but still is true,
Not only is it is wrong, but it is a disgrace,

So many of them were left with scars and bruises that were black and blue.
A lot of this started with this poor old lady did on want to give up her seat on the bus.
All she said, "Please let me sit here because I had a hard and tiring work day" Yes, it was not right for so many to look at her and make such of a fuss.

Well this lead a man named Martin Luther King Jr. to lead a Bus Boycott her way This poor and tired woman's name was Rosa Lee Parks And she is now known for help making racial equality strides
That today we are just now seeing how this light in her is bring our nation out of the dark
And today it still shows how she impacted our lives
