( Spoken by the Widow )
River Niger Can I cross you to see What may be my fate over there ?
Can I cross you Either by swimming or by boat To speak with my maker over there ? I see I ’ m the only one left To cross over For my pilot has gone ! ***
The Uneducated Mind ( Spoken by the Widow )
My life is groomed With a broken discipline . No one taught me some life implications .
Left with people who ' re not my root I learned the other way , A way of destruction . *** A Caged Bird ( Spoken by the Widow )
Like a caged bird , I cannot sing my maiden songs Nor can I dance to express my mood .
