Still I Rise

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 ?
'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
 
Did you want to see me broken ?
Bowed head and lowered eyes ?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
 
Does my haughtiness upset you ?
Don't you take it awful hard,
'Cause i laugh like i got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard
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

Does my sexiness upset you ?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like i got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs ?

Out of the huts of history's shame, I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain, I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear, I rise
Into a daybreak wondrously clear, I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave
I rise
I rise
I rise
Maya Angelou
