    Even to her the best of her works seems are more they the ones in the list at around some over four hundred who could just as better suit up a higher position, so why the number one. Believed her works are of great possession of thoughtful and ideological qualities but her works lacks the best of the scents of dealing with prose.

    I've just read Maya Angelou's BRAVE and STARTLING TRUTH. Every child, woman and man needs to hear these words....NOW!
    What a great poet she was.

    Her words are inspiration to me her books help me to calm my soul and search inside of me for me.

    Maya Angelou wrote of being a prostitute, a whorehouse madam, a communist and a lesbian. She hustled for racist/State eugenicist Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger referred to negroes as human weeds. Planned Parenthood kills 1,400 unborn negroes daily. Maya Angelou supported the South African husband/wife terrorist team of Nelson & Winnie Mandela.

    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.

    Maya, has taught me a lot, not just in her words but also on how to use them in our day to day life

Best Poem of Maya Angelou

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you? ...

The Lesson

I keep on dying again.
Veins collapse, opening like the
Small fists of sleeping
Children.
Memory of old tombs,
Rotting flesh and worms do
Not convince me against
The challenge. The years
And cold defeat live deep in
Lines along my face.
They dull my eyes, yet
I keep on dying,
Because I love to live.
