    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (2/25/2012 4:45:00 PM)

      The poem Still I Rise by Maya Angelou is inspiring and uplifting throughout. She has created a sense of confidence and conviction through her usage of diction and the poetic devices refrain and rhetoric. This poem makes me feel heart warmed, because Maya has stayed strong to her beliefs and has professed them through her work throughout her career. This poem also makes me feel confident, because this poem encourages expression of oneself. Furthermore, the repetition of “still I rise” makes me feel encouraged because no matter what is said or done, it can be overcome. Lastly, this poem inspires and makes me want to stay strong and take on challenges in life.
