Maya Angelou- Still I Rise

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 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'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.

Story of Me

I describe my brand as different but a creative and special. My brand is fun and fierce. I can also be smart and intelligent. When people say that i would never make it anywhere, i`m that optimistic person who is like now since you told me that i`m not, now i`m going to prove all you wrong. I`m going to make it somewhere with me just being me and using my brand to help others and myself. Don`t judge me, because your not perfect yourself. - Janae Mitchell

Gabby Douglas

Gabby Douglas is my inspiration. She was the first American gymnast ever to win both the team and individual all-around gold at the same Olympics. She has accomplished this all at 16 years old.

Don`t judge me until you have walked into my shoes

Please don`t be so quick to judge me i`m going to make mistakes and mess up. Don`t forget that you are not perfect either. It is life and in life your going to make mistakes. Don`t assume you know because you really don`t know the whole entire story. I`m a nice person so get to know me before you do judge me.
