This poem should be inspiring to all women who really want repect for
themselves.Mayo Angelou really told and showed the world that she does not
have to be loud or put on a show to get what she wants. All in all I think
she was telling us women that we should be seen not heard.I give her 10
thumbs up. I lofve u. #1 fan

Maya, I appreciate all of the uplifting words despite right now what this
country is going through. I copied down this poem and took if home to let
me mother and sister read it they both fell in love. Maya, I just honor
your name. Thanx

this poem means so much to me. As a young girl who is not like the norm and
does not have the model body, this poem makes me feel proud to be me. I
read this poem over and over again and each time i can feel my head rising
a little higher. This is a woman's anthem.
