    Maya Angelou was one of the greatest people to live. i feel like she wrote this poem on acceptance. accepting each and every single person and loving them for who they are and who they wish to be. people like her and princess Diana were the reason the world could have been saved from being destroyed by...itself.

I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,

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 ...

The Lesson

I keep on dying again.
Veins collapse, opening like the
Small fists of sleeping
Children.
Memory of old tombs,
Rotting flesh and worms do
Not convince me against
The challenge. The years
And cold defeat live deep in
Lines along my face.
They dull my eyes, yet
I keep on dying,
Because I love to live.
