I'd really like to read some more of Maya's poetry, does anyone know what
book this is published in? I've tried looking online, but I can't seem to
locate it, and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I really don't like the poem it self. I like the metaphores and stuff she
used in it though. You can tell she's very educated and been through a lot
by reading her poems. Personally, don't care much for this poem! :)

This poem means much to me and my country! We are not treated right,
because of our leaders! This poem says about love and that everyone should
be loved! I wish that this loving toke place inside and around my country!
This poem makes me happy and reminds me that I should love everyone!

I loved this poem, I used it for a memorization poem in school, everyone
loves it! The poems means so much! Everyone goes through changes in their
life; but if they believe, love will appear in so many different ways.

How do we read the poem ? I am a poorly educated women who has worked hard
to self - educate myself - I WANT to read, your website does not make it
easy to access the poem, just the comments, this makes it twice as
frustrating as I know that I am easily able to conect with the sentiments
expressed, BUT, can not read the words that helped people communicate their
feelings, do not understand how to access the words that moved people to
identify and relate to the poet who so well identified emotions, feelings
and allowed people to touch a piece of their humanity and compassion - I am
just a sad person, I.T illiterate,maybe I am just sad, but I have an
interest in the future of humanity, a real experience of life, I find it
hard to express myself, that is not true, however,I was frustrated when
searching your web site, I wanted to read the poem - did not easily
understand how to do this, pleases make it a simple process, allow people
like me to sample a little piece of education, diversity and knowledge,
wishing you a very peacful and happy Christmas - Julia

I liked this poem so much, I decided to do a project on it. I need some
help though. What are some poetic techniques and literary devices Ms.
Angelou uses in the poem and and the effects of those devices? Is there
any background information of the poem, such as why the author chose to
write it or her experiences that relate to the poem? I would really
appreciate it if anybody knows some extra information, thanks a lot!
