I am one who wont be caught standing in the sub lines, nor will I stand behind you Maya... I'm right there side by side walkin' every step w/ you adding more rhythm to that 'phenomenal' glide. I've always been an inspired fan of yours. You've always been a personal inspiration to me. A woman who's succeeded to many lengths and proved many unspeakable times just how strong, independent, and truly magnificent she it! This piece along w/ many others Ms Angelou has written, sung, screen played, produced, ect. will never be forgotten and has and will forevermore continue to mold me for who I am today and for who I will be tomorrow!
Maya Angelou is one of the most empowering, influential, inspiring woman whose poetry I read on a daily basis to empower my soul. She is a Phenomenal Woman.
Each one of the lines in her poems has a profound impact on all woman alike and yes, men too.
I beleive that poetry in itself is an art form. Art then, is individual creativity, emotion and expression, by my definition. Therefore, although many choose to judge a poem by strict poetics and poetic forms, in my best opinion, poetry should come from the heart and not be dominated by whether or not in some else's opinion, the poem is not structurally sound. Therefore, Maya Angelou's poems are not simply prose, they are an art form within themselves! Who would judge Michelangelo's or Rembrandt's art? Therefore Maya's poems as well are art. They move and inspire people. The content of her poems far outweigh any traditional structure that many obsess about. The aesthetics and meaning behind her words are simply put, magnificent! In my opinion, she's one of the best poets around!
I have had the privilage to listen to Maya Angelou speek tonight. It was the most incredible experience I have ever had. She had a presence like no other person. Her voice was hypnotizing and her words were filled with wisdom. I stood 20 feet away from such an amazing person and it will change me for the rest of my life. She is beautiful.
Maya Angelou is lyrical in her poetry form. Her poetry speaks of the depths of human soul and of human imagination. Her life in itself is an inspiration because it is what she draws on to write poetry. If you would like to know more about Maya Angelou I would read her autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Maya Angelou is one of the most inspirational and wisest people that has ever walked this earth. Through everything no matter what she has risen above. Her poetry and her words of wisdom inspire me through everyday life.
She is a beautiful person and if by chance I would one day be in the same room as her it would be a blessing and an honour.
Maya Angelou is a wonderful human being. Excellent poetry writer. She really makes you think about all facets of human nature. I am very inspired by her. She is one of my favorite poets. I am really touched by her poem 'Touched By An Angel'! ! ! !
She leaves me breathless in trying to follow the ascension and breadth of her thoughts...thoughts blazing a trail through so much banality and mediocrity.
She inspires, challenges, and sometimes leaves me soooooooo ANGRY~! ! I become angry because so much of what she says is sooooo right...and so much of what she thinks I want to be...soooooooo wrong~! !
