Respect my voice for it is stronger and power.
I am bold and brave becasue I wouldn't have it any other way.
When I speak, people stop and listen- For I am worthy of being heard.
I am woman of color with a gospel tone- given to me by The Almighty himself.
Regardless of size and stature, I will be heard.
Respect my voice for it is beautiful.
Take what I say never for granted.
I could save your life with my words of wisdom.
My voice never faulters or stirs.
You will never hear me shake and stutter for my words are flawless.
A river of courage and dignity flows forth from my lips.
This river is graceful and clear.
No dirt or spoils lounge about here.
Regardless of my race and gender, I will be heard.
