Still I Rise

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketDid you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise.I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise

Maya Angelou.


Absolutely reflective of the mood I am in today, is that a picture of you?
Yes it is. Cranky,that's a good mood to be in.
Rahtid! At first, I thought is you wrote the poem and I was composing my post to big you up.

Still, I sensed that whole "diamonds at the meeting of your thighs" thing at the blogger linkup, I'm sure I sensed it! ;)
