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

This poem is an excellent portrayal of the struggles of life itself and the
way in which different people in possibly the same situation, view the
obstacle. Life condition plays an intrigal part in whether we win or lose
in life; I do believe that Maya Angelou depicts these choices in this most
powerful poem and the namesake for her autobiography. In that too, she so
aptly made aware to the reader, that determination and courage are most
important in overcoming hardships; also the way in which one views one's
situation is adamant in the eventual outcome. Kudos to this most eloquent
and down-to-earth woman, whom I look to as a literary mentor.
