Note: I’m On My Way is a traditional African American folksong, as shared in the Singing the Living Tradition Hymnal of the Unitarian Universalist Association, 1993, #116.
This poem is in the form of a pantoum and was inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words.
Note: Don read this at the Women’s March Rally at Fountain Street Church, in a Poetry as
Resistance session on January 21, 2017.
