"Still I Rise"
by Maya Angelou

This poem reminds me that even in the darkest of times, it is possible to come out strong. It has motivated me since I discovered it over 10 years ago and now, it is the inspiration for my next tattoo. No matter what life throws at you, you CAN get through it and you WILL get through it. Maya Angelou is a strong and powerful writer and picturing her voice saying these words only makes the poem even more impactful.
