Susan Poling WOW! Actually the author defines more than "blackness and slaves" within this poem. Maybe she doesn't mean to but THIS IS FOR EVERY PERSON(!) who has ever lived through hardships and been able to continue living again and again.

What would the world feel like without Maya Angelou??? Empty, totally empty. She's fantastic.

Mz.terri-baby I am a teenager growing to be a phomenial woman and this poem made me feel like a whirlwind of pride and dignity rushing to be let out!

Vanessa This is like a cup of Java to me. I go back to it from time to time, for refills. :)

Vanessa Awesome, Mz.terri-baby!

Ka Rima “What you're supposed to do when you don't like a thing is change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it. Don't complain.”

Martey-Temple can we truly have another Maya? she was simply real, authentic and reasonably defiant even after death!
