‘And Still I Rise’ By Maya Angelou [VIDEO]
In a time of hurricanes, financial uncertainties and a presidential contest that seems to have the world more divided than ever before, Professor Maya Angelou’s poem, ‘And Still I Rise’, is a beacon of light at the end of this very long tunnel.
This is from her volume of poetry ‘And Still I Rise’ published in 1978 but rings true even in 2012.
In a world that sometimes seems to be one vast obstacle after another, in a world where people appear to have lowered their values, in a world that is troubled in so many ways…this poem lends a hand to the mind and is a much needed emotional lift to the soul as well.
The human spirit is an amazing machine that can rise above even the most adverse conditions…but sometimes we can all use a little motivation…today this was mine.
