I know why the caged bird sings

What an amazing women. I love to hear how people grow through trauma & what happened to her at eight was so well articulated it moved me beyond comprehension. It also help me to put into perspective my own life lessons.

Love Maya

I've read all of Ms Maya Angelou's books I've been inspired by her poems to write my own.
