Rise- Inspired by Still I Rise by Maya Angelou

Thu, 01/12/2017 - 16:48 -- Axelle

For the darkness in the skies;The nightmare in disguise,Still I rise.  For the moon in the night,For the sun burning bright;Lord did we rise...   For my sisters and brothers; My father and mother I will rise!  For the pain in your eyes;For the love of your lifeYou will rise.  From the seas that remainFrom the soil after rain They tell you: "You are born to shine!"  Do not fear, Do not hesitate.The beginning have yet to start, The glory has yet to come.  In His Name, You will rise. Rise at the dawn, Rise like the Sun.    You will rise, For in the eyes of the storm, You got accepted to be rebornSo while you look and smile,Enter the promised Paradise.
