Yesterday was Maya Angelou’s birthday. If I had realized that in time, I would have posted this poem then. But even a day late, this is one of my favorite poems by one of my favorite poets. It is an anthem that every woman should know and every young girl should grow up with. There are days when I have trouble viewing myself this way but this poems helps.
Today, when I was looking around for what poem to post, I came across this video of Ruthie Foster. She took an amazing poem and made it even more amazing. After I finish writing this post, I am definitely going in search of where I can buy this song and add it to my iTunes playlist!
