I think her poems are the best
Walker voiced her angst wonderfully and effectively with all her fighting spirit.
Wow! What a fighter she is.
Good advice on living frugally when you have little. Great!
this is not a poem…in fact most of alice waker's 'poems' are not poems. these do not speak to me, nor do they touch me, intrigue me or mean something. to all of you who look at these poems and believe they have some deep and revolutionary meaning, think again. all this stuff it just sounds like political nagging and complaint, and frankly its tiring me. just because she has some sort of an important name does not make her every product a piece of art. wake up people! think for yourselves for a moment, if i told you that her poems were made by a five year old you would not take it seriously right? so why act as if these are master pieces? ? they're not! i like poems, i love it when they are smart, rhyme, cute, or sad, painful, depressing or even modern poems i don't mind, but this… this is ridiculous.
Expect Nothing Beautiful!
I am very touched by, and enjoyed your poem Blessed are the poor in spirit. It managed to say something I have been trying to communicate for some time now.
The poem 'Expect Nothing' gives me the sensation of unscrewing a lightbulb in total darkness. The expectation is boundless.
Amazing Author! Her novel, ''The Color Purple, '' Won both the Pulitzer prize and The American book award.
