"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?"
Still I Rise, Maya Angelou
My mum and I had been talking about Maya Angelou the other day, and I have been a long time admirer of her poetry, but I thought it was about time I read the book that she is most famous for, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. That next day, I poked into the library book store and found this copy for $3. Seeing it on the shelf was a sure sign to pick it up.
