I have to do a report on Maya Angelo. I had a choice of her or Lena Horne.
I picked Mrs. Angleo because I like to read poems. I took intrest in it
because I like to know what people think sometimes. The first time I heard
this poem, I was watching Poetic Justice. Im pretty sure that there are
alot of people that know your poem. I would say that it's the most famous
peom that you have. I didn't quite understand it but now that Im older, I
get what you are trying to get out there. Be proud of yourself. All women
of differnt ages are phenomenal in there own way and no matter how you look
carry yourself proudly. You don't have to be a super model.

this is a very inspirational poem for women but alot of people think its
for African American women only it's not to understand this poem you really
have to think deep, i think this was just telling women in general no
matter what you look like, what race you are, or where you from you are a
beautiful women and should be well respected. This poem was to make all
women have high confidents in themselves.

This is a very deep and passionate poem of how a woman that's not the
prettiest thing in the world has confidence of her appearence.The way she
feels is so inspiriring that it brings others that are the same to have
confidence in themselves also.
