Maya Angelou is the voice of America, From her shores she projects around
our vast planet a message of freedom, there is a geniune understanding of
the beauty that life offers, and the misery that is inflicted too. Maya
inspires honesty and captures life in words. She is without doubt an
exceptional poet and a beautiful human being. I am an uneducated man who
works as a cleaner, but I recognise compassion and goodness from that which
I read. Truly an Angel

I really understand where she is coming from in this poem. I too have felt
alone many of times. I have felt so alone that sometimes I would have to
cry just so I can feel better. I have been through so much in my life and I
am still going through alot. I am currently 14 years old. I truly admire
you and the fact that you are brave enough to to the things that you do. I
have read so many of your poems and I have been so inspired by each and
every one them that I have read. I love you.

This was such a good poem. It really shows how life iss nothing if you dont
have someone to share it with. Money cant buy you permanent happiness only
friends family and God can.

I remember that the first time I heard this poem was in the movie Poetic
Justice with Tupac Shakur and Janet Jackson. I remember watching a scene
in the movie where Maya Angelou guest starred and I thought to
myself..."This is the woman that has so much heart and has been through so
much that she can convey it so eloquently in verse..." I don't know
exactly where I'm going with this...I just know that this poem reaches
