still i rise! don't you let the tears dry out in your eyes, let them roll to your cheeks, let them fall. and shed the weight you are carrying, so very silently. so very quietly. making it look effortless, all the efforts you put in all the efforts! embrace the defeat. remember, you know grace. remember, you've known hate, how sour it tastes. you've known the cost of ignorance the chase of a race. the scars of a heartache, a broken dream, a lost soul, a forgotten being. remember to remember all that you've faced all that stood in your way. remember to remember the haters and the hate the words that were spoken with the mind to break you, your self-esteem, and your will remember to remember all that once was standing against you that now slowly watches you grow glow of glory and bask of being brave. what love tastes like, never forget. hold the power to forgive. having no intention to rule. so let the tears roll down, take the blow fall, break, begin again. sore losers don't make for great warriors.
