Miss Simone, You’re Still with Me!

I only know of you in a few words.

Then I saw you…nothing changed, opinions did not obscure.

I have felt such as you did…all those decades ago.

Now, the music is gone, along with the singer.

Yet, a baritone voice…still lingers.

Still it calls.

Still hurt is heard.

Nina, what a mess they made of you.

Watching as the mighty dollar fell.

Not placing love over that which is un-glued.

I Wish I Knew How to Be Free

by Nina Simone

I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free
I wish I could break
All the chains holding me
I wish I could say
All the things that I should say
Say ’em loud say ’em clear
For the whole round world to hear
