GREAT THINGS

GREAT THINGS

Let’s talk about something that we may not agree, it’s called fake news and it’s happened on TV.

So, don’t get this wrong because politicians know – they started fake news.

So, when this first came out they do agree, because they are the ones that started fake news.

So, look in your history book, and you will agree that fake news is not only on TV.

When people of color do great things, it’s not even in the history books – not even on TV.

SHADOW OF DESPAIR

SHADOW OF DESPAIR

It’s not prison walls that are holding me, it’s heartbreak and misery.

Let my heart journey, let my heart be free, release me from this misery.

Heartbreak coming down like rain, I can no longer take this pain, my heart is withering, it used to be strong.

Then one day you came along, playing your music, and I danced to your song.

Now you tell my heart to move on, covered with grief, and shame, like a tree in the shadows of despair.

You left my heart standing there, all alone with no one to care, In the shadow of despair.
