believe if u may dat this is about love for da essence ta me is a symbol of
a evalastin hope dat shall neva die. Triumphant as we feel we may be maya
is onli allowin our oppressors ta c dat with each fall an expected uprise
shall equal da conditions in which which strive ta suppress but not witout
srong will or hope.....

i think that the poems are to much about love.i really don't understand
them,and i don't really like them.But Maya Angelou is a great person.
Thanks

STILL I RISE TELLS ME THAT I CAN DO WHAT I WANT AS LONG AS I WANT TO.
STILL I RISE TELLS ME THAT WHENEVER I AM AT THE BOTTOM OF MY ROAD THAT SOME
ENOUGH I WILL BE OUT AND I WILL RISE AGAIN. STILL I RISE IS AN INSPIRING
POEM THAT WILL ALWAYS PICK ME UP WHEN I AM DOWN.

This poem seems to have a very complex people inwhich it is written for.On
one hand it evokes a feeling of great human spirit and will but you can't
ignore but pay attention to the possibility that it is dedicated to one
particular culture or race when it makes referrences to slavery being black
makes me read it totaly diffrent.
