I am not going to be overly emotional or sound scientific like some of
these people that commented but say what i feel about this poem.
i think it is one of the best poems that i have ever read and i have heard
it performed many times at school and places with much emotion and when
there is a speaker saying this poem in the right way it truly sounds

I really like that poem I can relate. I have some people who don't like me
they can say stuff to me and about me as you said I will rise.

One of my teen students,(bible/Sunday school) read this poem and
immediately knew she had to recite it doing the Black History Program at my
church.The meaning is clear. Keep pushing for your beliefs and never give
up. Thanks Web and Mrs. Angelou
