three month and we're going to kick off the week with Maya Angelou and her powerful poem still arise. Here's Maya. You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies You may trod me in the very dirt but still like dust Al right Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? Just cause I walked as if I have oil wells pumping in my living room just like moons And like sons with the certainty of tides Just like hope springing high Still I want Did you want to see me Broken bowed head and lowered eyes shoulders falling down like teardrops weakened by my soulful cries That's my assassin is upset you don't take it so hard just cause I laugh as if I have gold mines digging in my own backyard You can shoot me with your words You can cut me with your lies You can kill me with your hatefulness But just like life. All right. Does my sexiness offend you? Okay, Does it come as a surprise that I dance Mhm as if I have diamonds at the meeting of my thighs? Out of the huts of history's shame I rise up from a past rooted in pain arise a black ocean leaping and wide welling and swelling and bearing in the time leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise into a daybreak miraculously clear I rise, bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave I am the hope and the dream of the slave And so oh, there you go Mhm.
