IF FEMINISM WERE A POEM!
A few days ago I made a post titled “If feminism were a song,” where I shared a song by Fantasia that I felt truly captured what feminism means to me. Continuing on with that same theme, today I want to share a poem that I think captures what feminism is all about.
That poem of course is “Still I Rise” by Dr. Maya Angelou.
“Everyone in the world is going to bed one night or another with fear or pain or loss or disappointment, and yet each of us has awaken arisen, some how made our absolution, seen other human beings, and said, “Morning how are you? Fine thanks and you?” And it’s amazing, wherever that abides in the human being, there is the nobleness of the human spirit, despite it all, black and white, asian, spanish, native american, pretty, plain, thin, fat.” – Dr. Maya Angelou
