African American Pride

by Nerissa Cannon

The colors of the rainbow don't contain me
My shade is free you see
The skies can't bound me for when I stop
Pass the sun is where I'll be
Like a river streams
I'm a ship of dreams
A rocket of hope it seems
My destiny I'm sure to reach
Then others I'll teach
My oh my, obstacles try
To reach a mountain top's high
But determination I hear
Leaces nothing to fear
And patience I know
Will take me just where I want to go
The moon is full and stars shine
I am me and the world is mine
