Today I Rise

Transcript:

Where are you?
Where are you,
Little girl with broken wings
But full of hope?
Where are you,
Wise woman covered in wounds?
Where are you?

Today is the day
I will not sit still and
Give in anymore.

Today I rise.

I am bruised
But I will get up
And walk again.

Today I rise.

I don’t care
If you ignore
My beauty.

Today I rise.

Through the alchemy
Of my darkest nights
I heal and thrive.

Today I rise.

I move through the world
With confidence and grace.

I open my eyes
And I am ready to face
My wholeness as a woman
And my limitless capacities.

I will walk my path with audacity.

Today I rise.

I reconnect with the many aspects of myself.

I’m in awe of the reality I can create.

I am a queen.
I am a healer,
A wise woman,
A wild woman.

I will rise and be.

I am a rebel.

I will wake up and fight.

I am a mother,
And I am a child.

I will no longer disguise
My sadness and pain.

I will no longer suffer
Or complain.

I am black and I am white.

There’s no reason to hide.

Where are you?

Where are you?

I call upon Khali to kiss me alive.

I transform my anger to power.

No more heartache
Or strife.

The world is missing
What I am ready to give…
My wisdom
My sweetness
My love
And my hunger for peace.

I weep with the trees
And the rivers
And the Earth in distress.

I rise and shine
And I’m ready to go on my quest.

Today I rise without doubt or hesitation.

Today I rise without excuses or procrastination.

Today I call upon my sisters
To join a movement of
Resoluteness and concern.

Today is my call to action.

I will fulfill my mission without further distraction.

Today is the day.

Today I will start
To offer the world
The wisdom of my heart.
