Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


'Still I Rise' Like Maya Angelou Do You?


Indomitable will of humanity
to rise from oppression
slavery all odds uncounted

the will of those who cannot
bend the knee to ultimately
triumph over injustice adversity

Maya Angelou claims birthright
to rise through history rise rise
rise to aspired to promised land.
