My Inspiration

I draw alot of my poetry inspiration from Dr. Maya Angelou. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, a chronicle of her life up to age sixteen (and ending with the birth of her son, Guy) was published in 1970 with great critical and commercial success. Although many of the stories in the book are grim, as in the author’s revelation that she was raped at age eight by her mother’s boyfriend.

Her life experiences and the strength she was able to draw out of them to write such powerful poetry.
