Like a sack left on the shelf,
Don’t think I need your chattering.

    I've always loved Maya Angelou's writing. When I taught at the community college, I'd present her stories and poems to my students, and they loved them too! I love this poem; it says it all, as only she can do. (Report)Reply

    When you see me walking, stumbling,
    Don’t study and get it wrong.
    ‘Cause tired don’t mean lazy
    And every goodbye ain’t gone......insightful lines. A brilliant poem.

    I am making $98/hour telecommuting. I never imagined that it was honest to goodness yet my closest companion is acquiring $20 thousand a month by working on the web, that was truly shocking for me, she prescribed me to attempt it. simply give it a shot on the accompanying site..../[][
