    There are poems in this collection that I love, and some that I think are just okay But what I love about Maya Angelou is her defiantly hopeful perspective on life in all its ups and downs Life doesn t frighten me at all Not at all Not at all 46 I was born to work up to my grave But I was not born To be a slave 34 I may be last in the welfare line Below the rim where the sun don t shine But getting up stays on my mind 47
