Still I Rise By Yomi Edward
















Still I rise
I bear the world on my shoulder with a smile…with a smile
I ride my storm
I embrace its fears…with a smile
yes…with a smile
I am the scion of a lion
the roaring beauty of Judah
whose adorning skin glows fairer
than the fairest lillies.

Say still I rise
to the waiting embrace of mother-rainbow
whose adornment beautifies
the path that leads before me
I am destiny
I am a smile
