    Superb composition. Extraordinarily original. Deceptively simple. I love you, Maya.

    Love it! the first I heard it was Janet Jackson quoting it in Poetic Justice with 2pac. I watched it when i was yound and later found out Maya Angelou had wrote it. It made a difference in the way I grew up to look at myself, which I think is what she was going for. She carries herself indeed as a model lady. (Report) Reply

    A wonderful Poem, as it was rated. A piece of cheese in a rat mouth, and nothing changed for the niggers in the world. A big figure of black people and nothing cares to not violate the niggers in the world. A poor slave consumed with a beautiful spirit she was. (Report) Reply

    I know no one will probably read this but i'm willing to give it a try

    I am a 15 year old talented poet(that's what i think) And i have written about 10 poems now.I need someones opinion on my poems.No one reads my poems and i cant get my message out there and it makes me really frustrated.I would appreciate it if you guys would read my poems and give me your opinions on them
