Words To Keep (Dedication To Maya Angelou)
'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.'
Words like those are what I needed to stab into my chest
Words like those put me in a trance
I wouldn't have guessed such a human being could be so strong
But nevertheless, I shall not only speak on what I should do
I must act upon it
Thank you maya...
I shall carry these words into my veins for as long as I continue to live.
Most of where i pace, Humanity is immune to never creating a second mouth for this beast to feed upon....
It is constant for humankind to screed pessimistically about a certain being or something that does not even exist...
The tiger is never affected by words that mean nothing to it.....
Beliefs of society can always be opinionated....
But almost never proven fact.
