    This is a poem by a composer known as Mr. Redrick that came to me by way of e-mail. i wanted to share it with you all 'cause it meant something special to me by the time i finished reading it. i hope it means as much to you as it does to me. enjoy:


    Sounds of Blackness
    I am the voice of Africa
    I am the sound of water that flows in the River Nile
    I am the laughter of the village child
    I am the cool wind, that brings stillness in the African night
    I am the beat of the drum, that signals warriors to fight
    I am the sounds of blackness
    I am the voice of the ghetto
    I am the heartbeat of the gangbanger who must turn and run
    I am the crackle of gunfire from a policeman’s gun
    I am the prayer that rolls from the lips as a mother cries
    I am the sounds of blackness
    I am the cry for justice
    I am the chant of the protester that marches in the street
    I am the roar of black power, from the militant leader who will not retreat
    I am the whisper of hope, for those that wait for freedom to ring
    I am the lyrics, that tell my people to lift ev’ry voice and sing.
    I am the sounds of blackness.
    I am the voice of greatness
    I am the song of the slave, who sang for emancipation
    I am the command of the elders, who told me to lead the nation
    I am the grin of approval, from parents who believe in me
    I am the blessed child of a God who set me free

    Challenge me if you will, put me to any test
    No I’m not a perfect person, just one of God’s best
    I am the sounds of blackness
