On The Pulse of the Morning

I hear The Caged Bird Sing

It is because of you Mama 

That I know what its song brings

In the shadows of the sun’s rays

Still I Rise

As the Men all wonder where my secret lies

I’m Phenomenal Mama 

Just like taught me to be

With The Heart of a Woman

And good fitting wings

You gave A Letter to Your Daughter

Now a song will be flung

While we Gather in Your Name

To celebrate your battle won

You Shall Not Be Moved

Your words shall not be forsaken

Mama, because of you

I have finally awaken
