Two words from this poem that I think affect the overall meaning are: mercy and Saviour. I think these word have a lot of meaning in this poem because despite the fact that the poem is talking about slavery, Wheatley is talking about how she found mercy and how because of God she was able to write. I think these two words have a huge impact on the poem. If those words weren't in the poem you would think the author was being negative and not appreciating the opportunity she has been given to write.
