    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (2/27/2012 4:57:00 PM)

      Still I rise is a very emotional poem that demonstrates strength and defiance from the first stanza to the last. As each satnza progresses she demonstrates her strength as an individual. She doesn't care what anybody else thinks she is just focused on doing what she wants and being the person she wants to be, not the person society wants her to be. I also feel that she is like a Phoenix. No matter how much she falls or burns she rises up from the ashes a stronger person, still I rise. This idea of survival and individuality comes through even more when you hear her read the poem. It sounds like a song about her life. The rhythm and flow of the poem really stands out when the poem is spoken overall this is a poem that shows that even if you get knocked down you hsve to get up and keep going
