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.

(Aldous Harding – The Barrel)

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.

(Shhe – Boy)

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

(Weyes Blood – Movies)

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

(Julia Jacklin – Don’t Know How To Keep Loving You)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwDPzTW-HBA

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.

(Faith Eliott – Loomis)

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.

Dana Gavansky – One By One

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?

(Hannah Cohen – Wasting My Time)

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise

(Rozi Plain – Swing Shut)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9SS-WVAEzE

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

(Stella Donnelly – Tricks)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Q0t_dDKjyI

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.

(Emily Fairlight – Water Water)
