She Will Rise (inspired by Maya Angelou)

The words you spit are what keeps her down

but little do you know that she will rise.

 

The whips that hit and beat her down are what

creates that ramant fire that will still rise.

 

The nit that picks and tears her down will

become immune in the final battle.

 

And in that damning fight she will break free

and throw you down with all her might

because just like air she will rise!
