Still I Rise

Rating: 4.4
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?

Ancestors have given you identity. You have right dreams and dignity. You have right choice in your mind. You rise in new way and you find the light of mesmerizing effect. No one can suppress your rising attitude. You are the best. This poem is excellent!

Like moon, sun and tides you have constant power to do your work without disturbance. Hopes spring very high in your mind and you can rise like, sun, moon and tides. Yes, you can rise as you are rising now. Crossing over history's shame, you rise with due respect.

Dust shines when comes in contact with light. People in illusion cannot know anything. Nature turns dust in to gold particle. Anyone can shoot you with his words but you do not bother. You have strong determination. You have patience and power.

No one can defame you. No one can break you down. No one can write bad history for you and no one can weaken your soulful cries. No bitter twisted lies can make you dust. Even dust shakes hand and turns the face to rise.

'that I dance like I've got diamonds, at the meeting of my thighs'..the simplicity carries so much meaning and honestly I find it funny too, how she chose to word these lines.
