This point was the one that shined over every other poem to do an poem
analysis over it reached me because of everyday life situations that people
come across and this poem just might help them through it might not change
much but beleive me it will change something.

Some of us awaken in this world which we where delivered into with a
struggle that at the moment of our birth, was going to stick with us for a
majority if not all of our lifetime. A new day, that same struggle.
People...always keep your head up.

This poem is one of the greatest that Maya Angelou has written. Not only
does this poem expresses a womans rise and determination, but also African
American people as a whole. It has really touched me, to see how Angelou
has produced imagery with her words.

To be honest, reading this poem is sort of boring to me, but as I carefully
think about the meaning, this poem is getting better as I read on.
