    As truly great master, just with a few short symbolic lines unified in an inspiring picture, Maya is opposing hypocritic view of conceit, fighting it off on the ground of sedimented personal experience and love, mirroring her humanity - beyond and apart of poetry call. (Report) Reply

    The title gives a pleasant imagery. More or less like a teacher‘s advice to his student! I am impressed by the tone of the 2nd verse- “let others enjoy the privacy of the touching words and the love of loss of love.“

    A very touching poem. I see and feel in this
    poem a sense of longing for togetherness.
    We are all one, no man is an island. Very
    spiritual. (Report) Reply

    The mysticism of the poem reverberates in the reader's consciousness while the poet wants to rise higher hand in hand with supreme being. Simple but powerful poem. (Report) Reply

    This is real poetry. Poetry is nothing before the person whose hand she wants to hold for all her feelings belong to him then what is left for the poetry? Great poem. (Report) Reply

    Awesomely Spoken and written Ms. Angleou,
    I love the script of words used on a former sitcom you were on.... You said that to write is not to impress, but instead to be happy with yourself and with what you write is more important This is helping me. Thank You...I as well have liked your acting that I have seen. And you have captured the hearts of many.. You are such a Blessed Woman, Indeed. (Report) Reply

    Life is going to be what you percieve it to be, like this poem, debate and figure out things for you to understand, however negative or positive is YOUR choice.
    I believe she is expressing a togetherness/temwork to go pass and get forward to life living. (Report) Reply
