    The trees applaud as I song my song
    The ground continue to open and close
    I stop upon the bark of the street
    I song my song, black man be free
    The birds surrounded me as I bowed
    The ants set at attention as I began to cry
    The roaring winds play my melody
    The waters begin to applaud as
    I song the song out loud
    Nobody no the trouble I seen

    Lord the bird song, the wind screamed
    The sun went down, the ground begin
    To curdle as I cry and danced out loud.

    The tears begin to fall, the laughter and
    The joy, all the time the colored folks
    Was standing behind the bark
    Of the tree, a horse ran behind the dark
    And the burning bush cried aloud
    Black girl dont you cry.

    VISION

    Your vision is a gift, I felt as if I were watching a movie. This was a very powerful piece.
