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.

strength exist.

Wow!! This is such an amazing poem!!Our grade 12 class was given a poem
assignment and we had a choice between this poem and another poem. I didnt
know anything about maya or havent read any of her work. After reading her
poem i was astounded, and this poem is so complex and interesting it makes
me want to read more of her work. Being native american, our culture is
very similar to african americans, in the way we are treated and looked at.
So when i read this poem it gave me confidence in my own culture and to
look past people who tear us down. Thank you Maya Angelou!!!
