The Poem “I am a Christian” is by Carol Wimmer

…and not by Maya Angelou. Maya denies that she wrote this on her web site, and here is the snopes for this urban legend:

but it is a wonderful poem in both it’s original form and its urban legend form.

The true author is Carol Wimmer who is happy with  its popularity, but not so happy that the words have changed.
