The Voices of the Ancestors

by Memphis Vaughan, Jr.

Listen to the voices of the ancestors
Echoing from the past
Remember the ways of the ancestors
Their legacy shall always last
 
Cherish the lives of the ancestors
Their faith in God paved the way
Rejoice in the memories of the ancestors
Their past achievements resound even today
 
Fight for justice like the ancestors
The battle is still being fought
Teach the lessons as did the ancestors
There are many young yet to be taught
 
Tell the stories of the ancestors
Let them resonate through our lives
Show love to all like the ancestors
For thatís the only way our family will survive
