(March 19,1955 / Fayette, Alabama)

You Don'T Say

Raped of your supremacy
Because of the color of ones skin?
Robbed of your democracy
Because you know not your kin?
You Don't Say.

Spent a lifetime searching
Who you really are?
Forfeited real family structure
Kept you from going how far?
You Don't Say.

Say you missed you goals
Leaning on the Lord?
Say you done your best
And worked extra hard?
You Don't Say.

Building bocks of life
Sometimes come disguised.
Everyone somehow suffers
But someway all survive.
You Don't Say.
