Fans are my favorite thing in the world. I’ve never been the type of artist who has that line drawn between their friends and their fans. The line’s always been really blurred for me. I’ll hang out with them after the show. I’ll hang out with them before the show. If I see them in the mall, I’ll stand there and talk to them for 10 minutes.

I have stood firm through my storm and I am still standing

I have rolled down many hills only to find myself standing back up, dust myself off and just to keep it pushing

I have fought through the hardest time in my life only to shine like the strong woman that stands before you now
I have cried a million tears and felt like life was not worth living only to get up the next day to see that the tears had dried up and a new day has come.
I am a strong woman to every part of my soul; I may not look like it but walk a day in my shoes then tell me.
I have seen things that you cannot imagine and still I can see the good in people
I have been made to be this woman that holds the world in her hands and still do not feel as if I belong, I may only be a superwoman to myself but I am who I am and in this world it matter not what you think of me but what I think of me.
I have had lost the best of me and still I push on like it never happened please do not take that lightly it has effect on me like no other but I am while aware of what I need to do to live until God lets me go. I am a strong woman

A first child is your own best foot forward, and how you do cheer those little feet as they strike out. You examine every turn of flesh for precocity, and crow it to the world. But the last one: the baby who trails her scent like a flag of surrender through your life when there will be no more coming after–oh, that’ s love by a different name.

Birds have wings; they’re free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy.

Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them?
Rose Kennedy

Birds sing after a storm…

Tagged , , , , , ,

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and is tune is heard
on the distant hill for the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

Maya Angelou
