thanks, coretta

i walk behind my man
not because i can’t stand tall
but to ensure he is uplifted
if he falls

i walk in front of my man
not because I’m on display
but to protect him as the
weapons come his way

i walk beside my man
not because I will not lead
but because next to his side
is where I’m needed

i hope coretta knew her role in the civil rights movement was one of the most important of them all.
