Maya Angelou 1928 – 2014
Ms. Angelou was one of those women whose words stayed with you-
as though they were drifting through the air
following you through the stages of your life.
She shared her deepest and darkest experiences
and in doing so, she helped us make sense of ourselves.
I believe that one of Maya’s most endearing qualities
was simply her presence.
No matter if she were talking about pain and heartache,
or joy and love, she remained calm, confident, sincere, and humble.
She never felt the need to raise her voice
or prove herself to anyone.
When she came to terms with who she was and
what she had to share with the world,
she became a powerhouse of hope. ✞
She was transcendent. I was in awe of her.
I’m sure God has embraced Maya in her final resting place.
She has left an indelible mark on this earth –
one that will not soon be forgotten. ♡
