Performance Poem

Freedom Ain't a Whisper

I'm gonna tell my story

I'm gonna spread the news

Cause nobody can tell it

like I understood

Freedom wasn't a whisper

It wasn't a sound but a name

a mighty and wondrous name

I wanna scream and shout

I wanna yell it again

Again I say I gotta hear it again

That sweet name that freed me

I'm gonna tell my story

I'm gonna spread the news

Cause nobody can tell it

like I understood

Freedom wasn't a whisper

It wasn't a sound but a name

a mighty and wondrous name

Some say child you're fooling

Some say child you're missing

But I know what I've been through

And I know what I heard

the sound of greatness and the sound of joy

I'm gonna tell my story

I'm gonna spread the news

Cause nobody can tell it

like I understood

Freedom wasn't a whisper

It wasn't a sound but a name

a mighty and wondrous name

People can come and people can go

Seas may rise and land may fall

Searching and searching but never finding

All I know is Heaven is near cause I drink

from its well and it felt like life should be

I'm gonna tell my story, to the world

I'm gonna spread the news, all over yonder

Cause nobody can tell it, not nobody

like I understood, unless you've been through what I've been through

Freedom wasn't a whisper, nope

It wasn't a sound but a name, no

a mighty and wondrous name
