I Rise - Poem by Samithree Rajapaksha

I rise, I still wanna rise
Whatever you said
Whatever you did
No matter what it takes
But I rise, I still wanna rise

Without tears in my eyes
Without feelings in my heart
Without a sight in my soul
Without a single word from you
But I rise, I still wanna rise

Tomorrow won't be clear
Vision may be blurred
Feelings might be imprecise
Suffer would all be mine
But I rise, I still wanna rise

I wanna rise from the earth
I wanna rise from the wind
I wanna rise from the sea
I wanna rise from the dark
Yes I rise, I still want to rise

    Can you give me background information about you? I chose this poem to read out loud to my class, and I need background information, basic info.
    Also, the meaning of the poem, I got something out of it, but I'm not sure if it's right.
    Reply soon.
