And Still I Rise review à eBook or Kindle ePUB read And Still I Rise Maya Angelou's poetry lyrical and dramatic exuberant and playful speaks of love longing partings; of Saturday night party. The caged bird sings for freedom and the oppressed human being keeps rising There is so much obvious sadness in Maya Angelou but still I feel freer and taller and stronger after reading a few of her poems They grow with life as well What did the poems about ageing have to do with me when I first encountered her in my rebellious twenties I only saw her take on women and racism and patriarchy and the aching pain of hearts broken and rebuilt and rising rising rising not matter whatNow I smile at her stubborn refusal to get a rocking chair to rest the lungs that are hardly what they used to be Maya I want to say a whole generation will need the rocking chair early because of our times and our curses Lungs are not what they used to be And still we breatheFor those of you who want to feel sweetness in the inevitable sadness And Still I Rise is just the book for you
