5: The land was ours before we were the land's. She was our land more than a hundred years Before we were her people. She was ours In Massachusetts, in Virginia, But we were England's, still colonials, Possessing what we still were unpossessed by, Possessed by what we now no more possessed. Something we were withholding made us weak Until we found out that it was ourselves We were withholding from our land of living, And forthwith found salvation in surrender. Such as we were we gave ourselves outright (The deed of gift was many deeds of war) To the land vaguely realizing westward, But still unstoried, artless, unenhanced, Such as she was, such as she would become.

When she was young, she suffered a tremendous trauma: At the age of 8 she was raped by her mother boyfriend and she was on muted for five years, but only person she would talk to was her brother. Many of her writings are focused on her life style and what she been throw...... In addition to being an author/poet, she also was a club dancer and Madame just so she could have things to eat and stuff like that. Angelou is best known for her poems and the poem she recited on the pulse of the morning at president Bill Clinton's inauguration.
8: Dark Forest The moon is in the sky The animals are sleeping The wind is blowing the trees Darkness so scary Scary as can be No one is brave to go in there But one person goes in And never come back out
