    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! ! !

    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.

    No Loser, No Weeper

    'I hate to lose something, '
    then she bent her head
    'even a dime, I wish I was dead.
    I can't explain it. No more to be said.
    Cept I hate to lose something.'

    'I lost a doll once and cried for a week.
    She could open her eyes, and do all but speak.
    I believe she was took, by some doll-snatching-sneak
    I tell you, I hate to lose something.'

    'A watch of mine once, got up and walked alway.
    It had twelve numbers on it and for the time of day.
    I'll never forget it and all I can say
    Is I really hate to lose something.'

    'Now if I felt that way bout a watch and a toy,
    What you think I feel bout my lover-boy?
    I ain't threatening you madam, but he is my
    evening's joy.
    And I mean I really hate to lose something.'

    By Maya Angelou

They Went Home

They went home and told their wives,
that never once in all their lives,
had they known a girl like me,
But... They went home.

They said my house was licking clean,
no word I spoke was ever mean,
I had an air of mystery,
But... They went home.
