Today's Beautiful Gem: `Still I'll Rise' by Maya Angelou.

"Just like the moons and the suns
With certainty of tides
Just like hopes springing high
Still I'll rise
Out of huts of history's shame
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 the 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"
