A poem  by 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 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 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.
