"I am the dream and the hope of the slave"
"I rise"
"I rise"
Thank you Madam Angelou for this great poem that mean so much to all of us.
Although we might have been slaves for many years sometimes our own
thoughts and choices we make are still enslaving us till today.

I just wanted to say that this poem is very good, I always get an unreal
feeling when I read her poetry. She is an inspiration to me and as I can
see, a lot of others too. Shooooootz haha:)

Well, I guess in Maya’s eyes you have to do what you got to do to get where
you want to be , and don’t be ashamed along the way.

very deep poem

This poem should be apply to our daily lives to rise each and every time,
to the occassions of life it is hard at time,but we have those who have
walked before us like Maya Angelo and that alone is one of the many
inspiration.

Still I Rise!

I think that still i rise is very inspiring to young black people. She's a
black lady who was very feminist, she believes in female rights.
