Men...What can U Say? They have the power to stir up an unknown
fascination. At the same time, they can take everything you feel worthy.
Maya Angelou intensifies their use of power, ending the poem with a maybe
leading me to believe she may actually go through it again.

I enjoyed this poem, it immediately began to tantilize my senses....men!
This poem spoke to me of awareness and the levels of awarness that exist.
All men have good and evil it's for us to be aware...for the young woman in
the poem and for so many of us that awarness is only opened with
experience...sometimes good sometimes not so good...but life goes on so we
must go on.

I really love this poem. I think that it's speaking of the innocence and
vulnerability of a young woman when noticing and dealing with a man for the
first time. While growing up sometimes all we hear are the knight in
shining armor stories about men and love, never imagining that there could
be a not so pleasant side to it.

I have to say you are beauiful in every word that you write. I believe this
poem is about the rape of a little girl becoming women before her time. I
would know cause I was like this little girl watching the men pass by and
wondering if life would deal for me. Thank you Maya for writing my feeling
and my pain.

THANK YOU FOR THIS. I TRULY GET IT. YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION TO ME. EVERY
TIME I SEE YOU ON TV, I LISTEN TO YOUR EVERY WORD AND CHILLS RUN UP AND
DOWN MY SPINE. THE WISDOM I HEAR IN YOUR VOICE, THE WAY YOU OFTEN SLOWLY
SPEAK YOU WORDS, THEY MESMERIZE ME.THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING YOU.

I really enjoy the poem,to me the poem sounds like how men today look at
little girls crazy then it turn out to be abuse. But I can see where maya
is coming from with that poem it remind on that movie Woman Thou Art
loosed. I love you poem Thank u Maya
