"If I ever forget, can I come over for a reminder?"
"Bloody hell!"
Les and Rich had gone to bed. Sue annoyingly got into a conversation with
two newly arrived couples from Canada, so I settled back to watch some live
cricket from South Africa. Brian Lara was at the wicket and entertaining
the large crowd with another faultless display.
I have been going to college for some time now. I'm a young woman who comes
from Mexico. I am kind of new to America. It's alright out here. I don't
mind. The weather bothers me sometimes, though. It makes you want to come
up with ways to keep warm. My name is Sierra Caliente. My last name means
heat. I'd like to tell you of a time when I went in heat.
Then Kip suddenly leaps out from the side of the stage, and he's waving
this bloody-great knife around. And the chanting gets louder again. And I
kept thinking 'no, please don't hurt Janice. How am I ever going to explain
this to me mum and dad?' Of course, the knife's made of rubber, but you
can't see that from the audience, and after a lot of prancing around and
running it over Janice's body, with all the chanting going on, he lifts it
up, points it between Janice's tits and brings it down. All the lights go
out, Janice screams and I faint.

Still I rise

i've been teaching this poem to the senior classes for the past four years.
Each time i find myself loving it more and more. It inspires one and makes
one believe that anything is possible as long as one has the strong will
and determination of a MAYA ANGELOU.

Rama Subramanian from India
