This poem was just what the women of the african culture needed. It is
very motivational, it inspired me to never let anyone walk over me or make
me feel as though I am any less than anyone else. It has taught me to
secure with myself and to always set and achieve my goals. It was
absolutely phenominal!!!!

When I began to read the poem, it made me think she was speaking to some
slug of a man. Bitter lovers. It was quite a turn in my brain, when her
true meaning came through.

What a fine poem

The first time I heard it was in my English class and it really made feel
better because I was going through a tugh situation, after that I started
to look for this poem until I found it. And now everytime I feel down I
read this poem

Very interesting and motivating. Keep up the good work Maya.
