This entire series is dedicated to all the strong, powerful and unstoppable women
who do not succumb to societies evil eyes.
Lauren Bowmen, Maya Angelou, Nikita Gill, Rupi Kaur, R.M Drake, R.H Sin and many more 
are few of my many favorite poets who inspire me to draw something that is real and raw.

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.
-Maya Angelou

Lyrics by Jess Glynee
 I can dress to accentuate
My most feminine parts
I can dance
Naked on the streets
I can celebrate the beauty 
That is my body
Without giving any man
The invitation 
The consent 
The right
To touch me
- Lauren Bowmen
Some self lovin'
They won't tell you fairytales
of how girls can be dangerous and still win.
They will only tell you stories
where girls are sweet and kind
and reject all sin.
I guess to them
it is a terrifying thought,
a red riding hood
who knew exactly
what she was doing
when she invited the wild in.
-Nikita Gill
“Be so bold
So confident
That people stop questioning you
And start
Questioning themselves.”
- Lauren Bowmen
Things To Never Forget
“Love does not look like a person
Love is our actions
Love is giving all that we can 
Even if it’s just the bigger slice of cake
Love is understanding 
We have the power to hurt one another
But we are going to do everything in our power to make sure we don’t 
Love is figuring out all the 
Sweetness we deserve 
And when someone shows up
Saying they will provide it as you do
But their actions seem to break you
Rather than build you
Love is knowing who to choose.”
- Rupi Kaur
I would rather have the remnants of misspoken words
Smeared across my lips
Than to choke 
On the truths 
I wish
I had said 
I will wear them like lipstick. 
- Lauren Bowmen
"Her confidence in her body
Her ownership of her sexuality
Are not invitations
But proclamations 
That she does not 
Need you"
- Lauren Bowmen
