Optimistic-Sounds Of Blackness

June 16th my daughter Nia will be attending her moving up(graduation) ceremony from elementary to middle school. I am filled with so many emotions. Grateful, happy, excited, apprehensive but most importantly, I feel LOVE.
It’s a celebration!!!
The Blackness

Keep, keep on
Never say die

When in the midst of sorrow
You can’ t see up when looking down
A brighter day tomorrow will bring

Optimistic

You hear the voice of reason
Telling you this can’t never be done
No matter how hard reality seems
Just hold on to your dreams

Don’t give up and don’t give in
Although it seems you’ll never win

You will always pass the test
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
Be optimistic

If things around you crumble
No, you don’t have to stumble and fall
Keep pushing on and don’t you look back

I know of storms and strive
I been around them all of life
Just think ahead and you’ll be inspired
To reach higher and higher!

You’ll always do your best
If you learn to never say never
You maybe down, but you’re not out.

Don’t give up and don’t give in
Although it seems you never win
You will always pass the test
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky (you can win child!)
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
Be optimistic

Don’t you let no body stop you
Be optimistic

You can win, yes!!!
Never say die”
