“You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?”
—From And Still I Rise by Maya Angelou
Our hearts are heavy from the news of Dr. Maya Angelou's passing.
She was truly a phenomenal woman.
Rest in Grace, Queen!
