I admire this women for the strength she has and her writings describe her
inner feelings. When I read this poem I saw myself very clearly, all my
life I have had obstacles in my way but Still I Rise, when I read this poem
I cry often, she evokes feelings that I have held in for so long, being a
Black Women, I can truly feel this poem and I reach down deep inside and I
feel the pain and joy of rising when people, the establishment and the
environment tries to keep me down, I Still Rise. Thanks for letting me feel
free to express myself. "Still I Rise" Cereather

I got to know this excellent poem as Ben Harper made a beautiful song out
of it (it's on his album "Welcome to the Cruel World"). These words have
such a strength, reading them they give me strength, too.

This poem is strength to those weakened by a world darkened with hatred and
prejudice. This poems encourages one to be proud of who they are, dispite
the ignorance of others.

This point was the one that shined over every other poem to do an poem

come across and this poem just might help them through it might not change
much but beleive me it will change something.
