I think this poem describes the progessing stages of abuse and the life
long effect it leaves even when a woman is able to get away from it. Maya
Angelou is a very talented and powerful writer. I have read almost
everything she has done and they have all touched me in different ways. She
is my inspiration in my writing and in my fight to be a good woman. Thank
you Maya.

I think that everyone should know what maya is trying to say.Every man has
a little bit or more control over almost any women.If a man plays his cards
right he can get anything out of a women. Finacial,mental,sexual.Only if
she feels he is worth it all.

It's an ok poem. again, you can tell that she's an expert at writing
poetry, but she never quite appeals to my moods!

This poem caught my attention right away. It was very real because many
girls experience these things and it happens everyday. Men are just like
this and girls have to watch out and take care of themselves.
