In my class we are studing poems and i had to ask my parents for their
favorite poems. my mom told me her favorite poem is still i rise.i had
never read it before and when i read it, it made me feel like i knew what
she was talking about.

I didn't think that I was going to be able to handle coming back to school.
But a lady from my church read this poem to me and it was inspirational.
And now I am getting ready to graduate from Indiana Business College. All
because I knew that I could rise out from the dirt of oppression and become
a diamond in the rough.

This is one of the many gems of American litterature.
It is the essence of reconciliation and motivation for the less fortunate
who have refused to give up or give in. It pledges Freedom.
Thank you Maya

Maya speaks in a tone of pride and confidence in herself which I believe
young black women in South Africa must come to a realization of for the
very survival of our country and it's new identity.
