This poem is unique and amazing. it represents all strong women,
exspecially black women. this poem represents the strenght and security we
should have in ourself and show the world who we are, and let them know we
are better than what they make us out to be.

Absolutely, phenominally excellent! I LOVED this poem! It was so
unbelievably incredible!

TO:Eric and Abdula from Iraq
Eric, I highly doubt that anything from a mind as shallow as yours
obviously is could ever come CLOSE to being a fraction's worth as great as
this. Women are strong... DEAL WITH IT!
Abdula, Sorry that your country spits on freedom and the right to get
over it, but American's don't! We like our freedom of speech so move on!

Hope springs eternal... This poem does celebrate the very human ability to
rise above horrid situations. However, it belittles the true evils of the
institution of Slavery. Please compare to Longfellows "The Quadroon Girl"

My native country spits on stuff like this, if you want my opinion try some
other type or literature. Perhaps comedy/drama for short stories. Vote

This poem was seriously lacking flavor. It was short and pointless, further
more my poems are far better than this crap. Love Roger

This poem is like no other. This poem is like women anthem, it gives women
around the world "STRENGTH". That way there would never be any poem like
this again.

i was required to read this poem and to study it.i did my study .i've
learned poems for one year.i've read a lot about shakespares or so .they
are hard but i understand .however i read this poem many times but can't
understand .i wonder how did it be done .it is like a mystirous that i can
never understand but that may be the best thing for the best writing is a
recreation .every time you read it you learn more about it .just like still
i rise.
