  • Jeanne (3/1/2019 6:19:00 PM)

    Sad that she embarrassed a young black female

  • Jeanne (3/1/2019 6:15:00 PM)

    A girl asked her a question and addressed her as " Maya" and Maya said to address her as " Ms Maya" . If I were present in the audience I would have stood up and introduced myself as Jeanne (tall white blonde human female) and full of empathy because she embarrassed that young girl in front on a crowd.

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? ...

Read the full of Still I Rise

Woman Work

I've got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I've got shirts to press
