Maya Angelou is my idol. there is no one who inspires me more than she does, besides god, if there was anyway i could meet her just to look into her eyes and see the genuiness of her smile.My life would be complete. She is the person who unwittingly started me on my path to poetry. I never learned so much from one person than I did from Maya Angelou. I want to be just like her.
I am moved by your poems.It gives me hope and courage.No matter what happens to me, I will rise just like you.I think this is really the inner weath that we must have, because only this we can live a wonderful life.
Ok, im not sure if many people tell you this but hey here goes anyway.
Your poems are heaps good, i mean in some of you poems the way you have structured them makes them, for lack of a better word awesome.
Anyway you should check out some of my poems and let me know what you think...
It would be awesome if ya could...
To not understand Maya Angelo, is to not be connected. For all who cant except a woman hand picked to speak at a presidential inauguration must be nuts. Give Maya her respect that is due to her. She may not be Shakespear, thats because shes Maya Angelo.
I was really impressed when I first read this poem, that's why I've decided to write an essay about it at school. Personally I think we have a mixture of both birds, sometimes when our life is running quite well, we feel as the free bird did, but when we pass through a bad moment or conflict we feel as caged birds trapped in our own prision with no way out. And the only way of surviving is trying to break those 'bars of rage' or shouting and singing until someone can listen to us.
