She’s written many poems including “Still I Rise“. This well-known and popular poem is not only a proclamation of her own determination to rise above society, but is also a call to others to live above the society in which they were brought up with as well.

Be sure to watch Maya’s “Still I Rise” video. The message is timeless and crosses all lines… the sentiment is beautiful, and important. It speaks volumes to the hearts of people everywhere.
