    WoW! Maya, , , I really really touched by this poem and I love it. It speaks really load and clear though my ears hardly hear it, but my heart can see, feel, smell, taste and hear the the struggle within. Yeah, and though we might lack something, but this poem reminds us that we still have our pride. THUMPS UP! ! !

    I admit to not knowing who Maya Angelou is...shame on me...but learnging to develop on my own, my own poems...she is the first lady poet that as moved me to tears...we need her poems to grace the librarys of the world, she speaks from the heart..she makes you see what happens to women in her time her era...are there more like her out there in the world..shes brillant...shes intelligent...shes is as of this moment...my idol...is that a sin to have a person as an idol, no I dont think so, she shows that women can be who they want to be...so can we all.

    So, loud and clear we hear statements that racism/discrimination on the grounds of colour and gender, have near been eradicated. But the subtle shadowed whispers that seep from darkened corners into the light, tell a completely different story... and those who know it, feel it! !

    When one scans the comment from Dave O’leary, my point is made without further remark!

    Still I Rise and Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou are a source of inspiration in times of need.

Million Man March Poem

The night has been long,
The wound has been deep,
The pit has been dark,
And the walls have been steep.

Under a dead blue sky on a distant beach,
I was dragged by my braids just beyond your reach.
Your hands were tied, your mouth was bound,
You couldn't even call out my name.
