Lace Curtain #wwwblogs

From poverty to prosperity

We drove a nationality

To a new prominence

With our faith

And desperation

Ships sailed from starvation

Into a new world

Of servitude and judgment

Forging a home

Still misunderstood

Mystics

Remembering the past

Our lace curtains

Hide the struggles

We overcame

And the world sees only

The success

And never the shame ~ Caroline A. Slee
