    He sings to be free,
    He sings to stretch his wings to their full potential,
    To fly higher than imaginable
    He sings to be heard.
    To let it be known, "I am here!"
    Ready to learn, ready to strive, ready to grow.
    He sings for love.
    The love of a mother,
    The love of a father,
    The love of the world.
    Why does the black child sing?
    He sings because no one listens to his cries.

    And what a splendid entrance you have made... for they still sing.. I'm just glad many have realized no one cares if they whine... Survival of the Fittest...Only the strong survive... (strong minded-spirit)
