STILL I RISE

Janetkalulu/kalulujanet.com

In Maya Angelou Poem Still I Rise, it gives hope to everyone to Still Rise, even when we have been through our toughest journey.

When I need a lift up in life, l go right into her poem.

Will you join me in remembering that:

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

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?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Soak in the vibe of her words remembering, never to give up not matter what you are going through.

Love
Your Catalyst Leader

CANDLE UNDER THE BED.

Lest we forget. All we are is divine. Let’s use our wisdom, understanding and skills unto the Lord and be the change we want to see in this world. Let us not bury what has been given to us freely.

We are given Divine qualifications to do the divine will of God. We are wise to contrive, diligent to execute, and able also to teach and help others.

We all have distinguished abilities, zeal, and knowledge, wisdom, to truly fulfill our calling and life purpose at any level.

Whatever we have learnt in school or anywhere else, if we are not using the skills, knowledge, understanding, truth to bring solutions, help people, speak truth, teach others, co-create then we become as useless as the candle under a bushel.

Blessings.

BE A LID CRUSHER We have to open the lid that is limiting us from achieving our highest potential. We have to break the lid off our comfort zone and grow to higher levels – Read more, change the status quo, step into new horizons, get new networks, get into new spaces, influence others, strengthen character, learn new skills, new perspectives, do things differently, want more and better – Once you want more for yourself, your family, your community, your company, your life, your country – You will break open the lid that is limiting you. #KingdomLeadership #fearless #LawoftheLid
