Called Moses By Her People
Author: Marilyn A F Longfellow

vinebar

Harriet Tubman was the very one.
In the year of 1851.

Called Moses by her people.
A slave to none.

Returning from freedom
Braving nineteen runs.

Three hundred people
Their chains undone.

Confidence, bravery,
And fearless of death.

Built the Under Ground Railroad.
She conducted by faith.

Abolitionists, Quakers, and Senators too.
She commanded allegiance. They all were true blue.

A soldier, spy, and Civil War nurse.
Her personal safety was never put first.

Called Moses by her people.
Their daughters and sons.

She knew God wanted Freedom
For everyone.
