The Soul of Nina

She passionately plays on the piano

As she unleashes the passionate message

That’s on her heart in song

“I’m just a soul whose intentions

Are good,

Oh lord please don’t let me be

Misunderstood”                                  

Her pride in her culture expressed in

Young, Gifted, and Black,

Sinnerman,

Backlash Blues.

A civil rights activist in song

Ms. Simone sung the blues

Most feared to sing

The sun rose on her in North Carolina

And set on her in Paris

She’s a beloved influence in

Music and poetry
