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!

this poem really made me think about the struggles african americans had to
go thru to get where they are today ... it shows that no matter who put her
down or who treated her badly she had to ignore them and overcome the
obstacles of growing up in racially divided society in this poem maya
clearly states that no matter what she does she will rise on top

Still I rise is a great poem that I think everyone should read. It is
about the struggles of people on a whole and no matter what is in their way
they rise. This poem is really deep and is worth the thought.

This is the most inspiring poem i have ever read and i also think its the
most inspiring ever wriiten. I have chosen to do this piece in my country
in celebration of black history month. As a young black person myself this
poem has touched directly in my mind and inspired me to be great and to
know and love myslef. This is an exceptional piece of work...a timely
treasure and one that will live on in the future for GENERATIONS..Great
things to Maya Angelou

Every year at the black history program at my church,

For I know with this poem and God on my side I wiil rise.
