Still Waters forever embedded in me…. as my footsteps cascade the sands of time….my inner
spirit sings, hums and dances its celestial songs of past, present and future….
Still Waters standing on the wings of my ancestral heritage….. Proud to be an African
American tuning in to CNBC, ABC and MSNBC seeing my reflection staring back at me….. Still
Waters run deeper then the deepest sea now does it truly mean something to me when I say
We have come treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered Out from the gloomy
past Till now we stand at last Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast….
Written By Tanya Jenkins excerpt By James Weldon Johnson “Black National Anthem”
