I’ll Rise

☀️ Maya Angelou, Still I Rise

“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.
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 offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I’ve got
gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.
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’ve
got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s
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 the tide.
Leaving behind nights
of terror and fear,
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s
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.”

  1. Хочу оставить отзыв о компании Теххолод и рассказать о моем опыте покупки кондиционеров и сплит-систем в Ростове-на-Дону.

    Мне довелось обращаться в эту компанию, когда у меня возникла проблема с работой моего старого кондиционера. Я был очень обеспокоен, так как живу на верхнем этаже и без кондиционера летом было невыносимо жарко.

    Когда я обратился в Теххолод, меня встретили профессиональные консультанты, которые помогли мне выбрать наилучший вариант сплит-системы для моей квартиры. Они объяснили мне все преимущества и недостатки каждой модели, поэтому я смог сделать правильный выбор.
