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 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.

I swear. This piece had me brimming with inspiration. Hope it wakes you up as much....

Sorry for being so inconsistent with the posts...But +2 is serious shit.

Random Poem

                          Playlist

You make me rock my head side to side
You make me smile even when I’m down
You’re just a click away my friend
You’re there in my head when I frown

My love, you are what keeps me sane
Your tune is what hovers on my lip
You can sing to me again and again
But still every time you have me flip

You are a keeper, you are my firewall
As you go up and down all through
I go up and down with you too
And even when you stop, you can still hear me coo.

Can I tell you a secret? A secret disclosed
As you sing your song every time
You make me want to fly away with you
You make me want to play my flute with your chime.

You’re still blaring out your tunes
As I run my words for you today
You make me want to write some more
As I flip through your play-list, pray.

 Wrote this some random day listening to this.

LOL


Have an awesome day you guys,
SAM B

photo-stalk!

http://weheartit.com/  is my current addiction. 


Cos Life is like a box of chocolates


Because I love the wind carelessly blowing through hair starnds
Cos it never hurts to smile :)
Because it's beautifully taken
Cos Juno was epic and Michael Caera is a sweeatheart


Cos I strongly believe so
Cos I've never seen anything more beautiful
Cos I heart beaches and wish for one here
Cos I fell in deep love with this from a long time 
Cos this is the ONLY one I believe in
Cos rain boots and beatle brellas are so much fun :)
Cos I can't forget you two, no matter what I do


Pic whore day :P

Hearting it all along,
