Still I'lI rise



Did a quick journal page with words from one of my fav poems by Maya Angelou called Still I Rise. The words on the page read:


Just like moons and like suns
With the certainty of tides
Just like hopes springing high
Still I'll rise.





Click here to read the rest of the poem on poets.org or here to see Maya reading the poem on youtube.
