    • POEM: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou (2/28/2012 9:31:00 AM)

      I Still Rise by Maya Angelou is an exceptional depiction of the thoughts occurring in a black woman's mind. I enjoyed the descriptions used in this poem such as the description of her being a black ocean bearing a tide. The use of words such as sassiness, haughtiness and sexiness are words that describe her restraint and self power. The theme in this poem deals with racism and struggle against those who oppress. The woman in this poem comes off as proud and strong. She believes in her community and looks at a future that is free of segregation. I can tell that she is strong willed with the repetition of Still I rise. After describing her being beet down by the oppressors. Overall this poem is a great poem on the fight for freedom.
