I THINK SHE WROTE THIS POEM BECAUSE SHE TOOK PERSONAL EXPERIENCE FROM HER
LIFE TO WRITE IT. I REALLY LIKE THIS POEM BECAUSE SHE PUTS HER FEELINGS
INTO EVERY POEM SHE WRITES. ONE DAY I WISH TO BECOME A POET AND SHOW THE
WHOLE WORLD THE FEELINGS I FEEL. I WRITE POEMS OF MY OWN AND ONE DAY I WISH
TO GET THEM PUBLISHED.MAYA ANGELOU IS MY MENTOR BECAUSE ONE DAY I WILL HAVE
ENOUGH PASSION TO WRITE THE EVERYDAY THINGS THAT HAPPENS TO ME.

Maya Angelo is my favorite poet. Maya's writing is often poignant, sassy
and sensous, yet always insightful. "Still I Rise" I consider my personal
mantra. It gives testimony to the tremendous struggles being faced by
African American women. Maya gives hope and encouragement to millions.

Wow that poems deep. We're doing it for some english assignment and yeah,
we think it's cool. I think both of us have already learnt that no mans
words or actions could ever put us down. We love you!
