    Today I Rise

    Where are you
    little girl with broken wings
    but full of hope?
    Where are you
    wise woman covered in wounds?
    Where are you? Where are you?
    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 night,
    I heal and thrive,
    today I rise.
    I move through the world with
    confidence and grace.
    I open my eyes and 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 am 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 and complain.
    I am black and I am white.
    There’s no reason to hurt.
    Where are you? Where are you?
    I call upon Kali to kiss me to life.
    I transform my power and anger,
    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
    am ready to go on my quest.
    Today I rise without doubt or hesitation,
    today I rise without excuses,
    without procrastination.
    Today I call upon my sisters to join
    a movement of
    resoluteness and concern.
    Today is my call into action,
    to fulfill my mission
    without further distraction.
    Today is the day, today I will start,
    to offer the world the wisdom of my heart
