Angelou, in her tradition of powerful metaphorical poetry, likens the pain,
suffering, aging, and losses in life to actual death, and reincarnations to
the beauty of living. Pain and death become not a reason to avoid living,
but a necessary part of the reality of life. She does not learn the lesson
of avoiding the pain and death, rather, she learns the lesson that they are
a part of life also, along with birth, youth, happiness. etc. Lovely poem.

Awesome,short and to the point! For me, dying to self is to Live again. The
Beginning of Life, may be many past hurts and pains, but with the help of
the Creater and a Will to Live, dying to the old self will give you renewed
hope and a Love for Life and a New You! Thank God we can become New, and
we can learn from past mistakes and share and lift others up! Life is a
lesson, so lets Learn and Live!

this is a very touching poem. Its is mainly about growning old and having
health problems but still putting forth effort to live longer.
