As we celebrate Black History Month, we remember those who contributed greatly.
Dr. Maya Angelou was a great poet.
Of all her poems, my favorite one is; “Still I Rise.”
I’ll share one verse, and you can find the rest on her website.
“You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.”
“Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
