Stars they come and go they come fast they come slow they go like the last light of the sun all in a blaze all you see is glory but it gets lonely when there's no one there to share.~Nina Simone Memories linger on in the night nothing's right without you #mg #mhp BerryYNWA
“Slavery has never been abolished from America's way of thinking." ~Nina Simone
“Birds flying high You know how I feel Sun in the sky You know how I feel Reeds driftin' on by You know how I feel It's a new dawn It's a new day It's a new life For me And I'm feeling good” -Nina Simone
Rest in power to revolutionary jazz artist and activist Nina Simone who died on this day in 2003.
