Share 'On Liberty and Slavery, by George Moses Horton (1798–1883)'
On Liberty and Slavery Alas! and am I born for this, To wear this slavish chain? Deprived of all created bliss, Through hardship, toil and pain!
How long have I in bondage lain, And languished to be free! Alas! and must I still complain— Deprived of liberty.
Oh, Heaven! and is there no relief This side the silent grave— To soothe the pain—to quell the grief And anguish of a slave?
