    They took us all away without consent.
    My child, my son they tore away from me.
    Without a mumbling word, we simply went.
    My home, in Senegal, I would not see.

    My life they took, I was a document.
    The hold was dank, and dark, with little food.
    So close we were the air a putrid scent.
    I missed my country, people, and my brood.

    I won't forget that time of servitude.
    But, freedom came, the time for us to go.
    Who stayed in Gullah land? A multitude.
    We have some land, Gullah/Geechee, hallo!

    If you want to see, there's much to show
    Our Culture is alive, the land's aglow.

    This is wonderful but it's a Shakespearian Sonnet
    cause the alternating rhyme scheme.
    Well formed, good strong content and great
    closing couplets. I really enjoyed this, good job!
