Read an Excerpt

You may write me down
in history
With your bitter,
twisted lies,


You may trod me
in the very dirt
But still, like dust,
I'll rise.

Copyright 2001 by Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou has always been inspiring to me as a poet- but hearing her read her own poetry... That was incredible! =)
