    From the story of your life,
    I learnt so much about life.
    One need not to despair,
    Even life itself is unfair.

    So, we have to prepare
    As learn more that make us greater.

    So some day we can be great like you.

Best Poem of Maya Angelou

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,

Million Man March Poem

The night has been long,
The wound has been deep,
