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.

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.

I have loved this poem for many years. I first heard it as a song covered
by my favorite artist, Ben Harper. I loved the song and then discovered it
was a poem by Maya Angelou. The words in this poem are very powerful.

Maya Angelou is absolutely amazing!!!! Her poetry is the most touching
poetry I have ever heard. I love reading all of her poetry but this is my
favorite because it is so meaningful, and the images are so amazingly
