This contemporary gospel-style rouser denounces oppression and serves as a choral anthem for equal rights. A confident solo voice helps deliver a determined message in the unwavering words of Maya Angelou. If performing as a set, an alternate ending segues directly into the closing movement of "Like Dust I Rise." When performing separately, Mark Hayes includes an upward modulation that propels us to the final, most spirited refrain.
