Angel of Words – A Tribute to Maya Angelou

May 31

Angelic words,Maya Angelou Wikipedia 1
With points of view,
She set us free,
With words so few.
 
Compassion grew,
From endless prose,
She spoke of pain,
The kind she knows.
 
The words she chose,
Could force a tear,
Or coax a smile,
Or banish fear.
 
She wrote of birds,
That cages keep,Maya Angelou Wikipedia 2
Whose freedom came,
And made us weep.
 
She wrote of healing,
Racist ways,
Her pen dug deep,
Through song and plays.
 
Her meaning shows,
Between her lines,
Poetic words,
That God defines.
 
Her words will live,
Where Maya spoke,
Within our soul,
Her words evoke.Maya Angela Wikipedia 3
 
We feel her spirit,
Poetic clear,
Forever scribed,
In hearts still here.

With Maya Angelou’s passing we lose a creative voice for all humanity. Who will fill the void? Who will speak for those less capable than you? What is your creative contribution to the world? What is your contribution to the world?
