    Tis the end of the month dedicated to us
    But in the dreams of those pioneers we still trust
    For our greatness is not bound by a month or a day
    It is achieved by the things we do & the words we say
    The shortest month they give us, well that’s quite alright
    We can do a lot in a short time, we’re used to the fight
    Let us rise & take a stand,
    Help others to understand
    Be proud of who you are,
    for you are capable of reaching the highest star
    Let us lift up one another
    Let us continue to help our sisters & brothers
    Purge the mentality of slavery from our mind
    And know that now is our time
    Lay down the drugs, lay down the guns
    For there is something more important that needs to be done
    Let’s take our rightful place
    As a proud & noble race
    Not discouraged by those who criticize
    But challenged to excel & rise
    Kings & Queens once were we
    Should motivate us to be that which we were destined to be
    And yet in our rising let’s not forget others
    Who may not look like us, those that are of a different color
    For the key to success is not in hating our fellowman
    But its in lifting each other up, with a colorless hand.
