Found Poem: Voices
Mavis Wang, Madisen Williams
 
You got to fight
But I don't know how to fight
You got to fight
But I don't know how to fight.
You got to fight them.
I cant do it for you.
You got to fight them for yourself.
 
I stay where I'm told,
I make myself wood,
But I'm alive.
Marching, hand in hand, like going to war,
She never blink an eye.
 
All my life I had to fight,
fighting like two men's.
I had to fight my daddy.
I had to fight my brothers.
I had to fight my cousins and my uncles.
I'll kill him dead before I let him beat me.
 
She fight, she stand up,
Make him see the Hodges in you.
My name Mary Agnes.
