I checked out Dr. Pockless' views, and I think you really have to weigh
what he said. She also wrote a poem about Africa, but I don't think this
is the same one. If you read her biography, you will see that she had a
really hard life, she was constantly told that she was nothing, and made to
feel like she didn't matter. Yes, Africa and her roots played into it, but
I think it was more personal than that.

It's obvious you have inspired other poets such as Tupac which have
inspired myself so I just had to say thank you.

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.....

them,and i don't really like them.But Maya Angelou is a great person.
