    Maya Angelou is the epitome of African-American poetry. People who never heard her name, they don't know real poetry at all.

    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.

Best Poem of Maya Angelou

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my ...

Touched By An Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
