This poem is the first poem I have read that ever made me feel something.
I know its good because hours after I've read it my mind travels back to it
and my head runs through the words to try and find a deeper meaning. It is
truely some of her best work.

This is why poetry is dying. This poem is obvious and boring. Maya Angelou
is a great woman but a lousy poet. Boo.
