Personal response to the poem, Still I Rise
The poem, Still I Rise, by Maya Angelou simply speaks about the struggles we undergo
in our lives in overcoming various forms of injustices and prejudices. Personally, the poem
inspires a sense of hope for the oppressed. Simply, the poem encourages me to always be hopeful
in all sorts of trying moments; be it ridicule from my enemies, abandonment by my friends, or
even discrimination for what I stand for. The poem underlines the reality that no matter what,
people will always have something to say about you; some may talk positive about you, while
others may spew negative stuffs about you just to bring you down. However, with determination,
you will always rise above the negativity meant to weaken your dream, stand, or even your
voice. Also, the poem pumps into me energy of boldness and self-assertiveness in standing for
what I truly cherish and believe in, and also not be intimidated by those who want to bring me
down through mistreatment and oppression. More importantly, Maya Angelou manages to speak
to me as a reader that in life, because of what you believe in, your aspiration, your traits, your
race, or your ethnicity, there are those who may work so hard to write you off or simply see you
come down. However, in as much as you strongly believe in yourself and hope for the best, you
will always overcome them and triumph or rather rise up again contrary to their expectations or
wishes.
