Midway by Naomi Long Madgett (1959) "I've come
this far to freedom and I won't turn back I'm
climbing to the highway from my old dirt track
I'm coming and I'm going And I'm stretching and
I'm growing And I'll reap what I've been sowing
or my skin's not black I've prayed and slaved
and waited and I've sung my song You've bled me
and you've starved me but I've still grown strong
You've lashed me and you've treed me  And
you've everything but freed me But in time
you'll know you need me and it won't be long.
I've seen the daylight breaking high above the
bough I've found my destination and I've made my
vow So whether you abhor me  Or deride me or
ignore me Mighty mountains loom before me and I
won't stop now.
